Who we work with
Our courses help to increase young people’s awareness and appreciation of the environment around them. They are exposed to challenge and quickly learn the need of teamwork and adopting a supportive behaviour. It’s also a whole lot of fun!
Our courses can help prepare young people for that important next step of their development. Whether it's a transition to a new school or simply building confidence and developing life skills
