Our PAKT mission statement states: "Parents and Kids Together works with the whole family to support young people to gain the assets they need to be resilient in the face of life’s challenges." Building on this focal objective we aim to support the volunteer in identifying realistic goals, through ongoing supervision and reviews we hope that the volunteer will experience a growth in their own assets and competencies which are also identified through the Youth pass process.
