Our aim is to target and instil resilience within young people using a military ethos.
Our experience as soldiers, as a team, have provided us with invaluable knowledge and skills to combat the challenges schools and young people face in today’s society. We aim to support and develop a combined learning experience with no child left behind, teaching tolerance for others, acceptance of social and personal responsibility, respect and discipline gaining sense of achievement while building confidence which is something we feel has somehow been lost in today's communities.
Focusing on specific morals and principles through learning, our courses have a positive impact where our success stories translate their "Military" style education into the classroom and everyday life.
‘We have a duty of care, the younger generations are our future, we are responsible for them and in such a diverse and media fed society we must provide them with real world realities and experiences to impact them and help mold them into respectful, disciplined and confident young minds that will become the glue that holds our communities together in the future.
One day TSOM will become a countrywide service, providing Military mentors and helping children to become the best they can be...The Best Deserve the Best!’
