PEACH (Parents in the Education, Achievement & Character of their children) is a project for mothers and daughters together. Any girl aged 6-18 can join PEACH and have access to our mentoring programme. The aim is to help girls improve their academic performance while also having fun, learning new things and developing their confidence and motivation. PEACH also offers mothers tailored support in achieving economic self-sufficiency and gives them a forum to share their experiences and learn how to support themselves and their family more effectively.
The PEACH Project is a collaborative work between mother-daughter participants and mentors with the aim of achieving a better future for each family. Mentoring focuses on an inter-generational approach to social mobility. PEACH uses a theory of change which holds that economic sufficiency for every family can be attained by achieving upward movement in the following five areas: Education and Training, Family Stability, Wellbeing, Financial Management, and Employment & Career Management.
- Girls enrolled onto the programme have a mentor who provides academic and soft skills support once a week for a minimum of one academic year. Mentors for the girls are professionals or university students from varying backgrounds.
- Mothers work in partnership with mobility mentors who give support, information, advice and guidance for a minimum of 1 year. Mobility mentors are Baytree staff who belong to the Family Service as well as volunteers.
- Mother and daughter participants take part in regular Family Activities such as events, trips, or celebrations.
