The Venture Trust works to increase the confidence, self-respect, aspirations and resilience of disengaged young people aged 16 to 25 years, enabling them to progress into meaningful employment, education or training. It works by giving people time and space in a wilderness setting, far away from the pressures of home. Physical, emotional and social challenges take the young people into a personal ‘stretch’ zone where powerful learning takes place. Then they are helped to evaluate what they learn, and plan how to apply these lessons on returning home.
14:19 Fund Investment will support a new initiative – ‘Inspiring Young Futures’ - which will work with young carers and those leaving care aged between 16 and 19 years old.
