Outdoor Explore

Outdoor Explore (OE) is not like any other program. It is a therapeutic, adventure-based program designed to give young people an opportunity to participate in a range of outdoor activities facilitated by highly experienced and qualified guides, such as canoeing, rock-climbing, abseiling, bike-riding, bushwalking & much more.

“Gracie benefited from your program in so many ways. She will miss the leadership of your team and your support. If only it was part of the school curriculum in an ongoing capacity. Such a program would benefit many students.” – Participant’s parent

The program provides an arena for young people to learn new skills, to confront challenges and fears in a supportive environment & to grow in confidence & self-efficacy. Furthermore, OE fosters positive peer relationships through shared experience & success where the outcome for the participant is a strong sense of belonging & team-spirit.

In addition, each week, young people are introduced to a range of personal development and wellbeing discussion topics delivered in a unique and engaging manner.

“We know that not all young people are engaged in school, and we also know that not all young people will choose to attend a youth centre. For this reason our staff undertakes a range of assertive outreach activities with a view to engaging the most vulnerable and hard to reach young people.”
