Young people's lives are impacted positively by:
- Improving their self confidence, communication and social skills through adventure and team building activities
- Developing their personal skills and character by taking them outside their normal teaching environment, giving them responsibility and teaching them leadership qualities and team ethos
- Helping them become aware of their strengths (and weaknesses) and to realise that they have a positive, "A+ ", contribution to make - a message they may not hear at home
- Teaching them how to embrace risk in a healthy way through providing challenging and safe activities.
Working with small groups, and building relationships over extended periods of time, we effectively mentor and make a positive impact on young people’s lives. Specifically, we aim to reduce behavioural problems, improve school attendance and academic performance and avoid/reduce offending behaviour and substance misuse.
A massive change in his outlook on life. He is so happy with himself.
