Take Hold won an ACT award during the last year for “Excellence in Organisational Practice”. Take Hold has three components: mentoring, life skills and social enterprise. The attraction of volunteers to mentor is still showing strong expansion indicating the level of support from the Canberra community for the program.
Based in Canberra, Take Hold is being asked to expand its life skills component primarily due to its impact within the organisations it is currently servicing. The areas of expansion are to apprentices and vulnerable high school students.
