GOALS (Growing Opportunity and Learning Skills) is a one-to-one mentoring program designed to widen the life choices and aspirations of students in Year 9 and encourage them to complete high school. Many students have little opportunity to network outside their immediate community and are often lacking in professional role models who can demonstrate or encourage a variety of career options. The focus of GOALS is to raise awareness of the wider personal, educational and vocational choices available to maintain student engagement at school and encourage the completion of Year 12 and further tertiary study. Students are matched with a corporate mentor who has shared interests and experiences. They work in groups and individually in sessions that include goal setting, communication, managing finance and preparation for the workforce.

The GOALS program has been running at Prairiewood High School for many years with great success.
