- To provide motivational support to MTS students;
- To ensure students attend MTS regularly;
- To reduce negative social behaviours displayed by students and harness their potential through Positive Youth Development (PYD).
Mentoring forms the distinctive component of the programme. Students are grouped with mentors who provide social and emotional support. Generally, mentors are matched with mentees of the same gender.
Developmental activities are conducted to enhance capacity of youths in building resiliency through experiential learning in a positive environment. Partners and/or vendors are engaged in running these activities, including external service providers and other Malay/Muslim Organisations to conduct workshops and activities.
This includes life skills development programmes which are specially designed to meet the components of PYD, and experiential learning conducted during the school term breaks.
Parents of youths in the programme will have opportunities to build their competencies by participating in the parenting programmes offered by MENDAKI. Parents’ Circles are conducted to impart necessary parenting skills and knowledge to better understand today’s youths.
