  • Help young people during the transition period of their lives from full time education to adult life by exploring their options.
  • Introduces new skills and opening up a variety of outdoor learning opportunities in a ‘green-blue’ environment to increase confidence to a point where young people can make life changing decisions, either to progress their education or explore job or volunteering opportunities.
  • To achieve shared goals in a positive environment by giving young people the opportunity to develop personal and practical skills supported  by an enthusiastic, experienced and knowledgeable staff team and volunteers.
