- Raise awareness of young people to the needs of others (especially other young people) locally, nationally and globally by encouraging them to engage in activities and projects in which they can make a difference.

- Be sensitive to the needs and aspirations of young people of varying backgrounds, differing abilities and stages of development by providing appropriate support, advice and guidance.
