How does it work?

There is no cost to the family or the young person. The School and Get Growing work together to choose a suitable time for the weekly lesson as well as the length of the lesson that will give the young people the best chance of learning some new skills. Grow provides trained Grow Facilitator who are legally able to work with young people, to facilitate the group and help the group learn and solve problems together. Get Growing does not require additional teacher or school counsellor resources.
