Callander Youth Project serves the young people in a 400 square mile area of rural Stirlingshire. It is rooted in the community and offers a continuum of services for young people from primary school through to the age of 25. Very good working relationships have been built with key partners including Stirling Council, McLaren High School, the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and the Forestry Commission.
14:19 Fund investment will enable the expansion of ‘Compass’, a successful programme targeted at young people aged 14 to 16 at risk of being not in education, employment or training. This provides flexible learning as part of the school curriculum and post-school rural skills training as part of a 26 week structured programme.
