Meet a coach

One of our team tells us why she chooses to work as a coach

    Hi, my name is Anita. I’ve worked with young people to help them achieve their goals for more than 14 years, 5 years with the Matthew Project and previously with Norfolk County Council’s Youth Service. As an On Track coach I understand the challenges young people can experience and it’s my job to offer confidential, friendly support to participants to help them set and reach goals.

    The support I can offer to help young people to get into work, education or training is tailored to meet their particular needs, and to make the most of the things they enjoy and are good at. I really enjoy the variety of my role, meeting new people and the opportunity to explore so many different career paths. The best bit is the privilege of being part of someone’s positive steps forward to their future.



    The Engagement programme is an important element of the On Track Process, and helps young people to further develop their functional skills.
