Explore (16-25) 


Explore is a personal development programme which offers young people a range of exciting group activities and one-to-one support to help them build confidence, get motivated, meet new people, and identify and work towards personal goals.  


The programme commences with a 4-day access week of outdoor based activities to help build and stretch the participant’s comfort zones. This also gives them the opportunity gain experience in and develop transferable teamworking skills.   


The remaining 4 weeks of the programme will consist of follow-on days where the participants will take part in a variety of activity sessions that focus on developing independent living skills, recreation or community activities, employability support, as well as continuing to gain experience working in a team environment.  


Examples of activities can include cooking classes, conservation/nature days, well-being sessions, digital upskilling, art/creative workshops and many more culminating in a celebration/next steps event to recognise the development the participants will have made and explore further opportunities post course.
