Adventure Specialties Trust
Adventure Specialties Trust understands young people and works alongside schools, using outdoor adventure activities to facilitate the growth, development and leadership of young people and families.
Acorn Foundation distributions has enabled Adventure Specialties Trust to pilot The Journey Youth Development Expedition Programme with boys from Papamoa College. The Journey is aimed at young people who are disengaged from their education and aims to be a catalyst for change in their lives. Through adventure activities, group discussions, leadership opportunities, teamwork and perseverance these young men will increase in self-efficacy, self-esteem and pride as they gain skills and mastery in fun, adventurous and challenging outdoor activities.
In 2019, Adventure Specialties Trust received funding from the B Sutherland Fund.
