In a nut shell: We offer up to a year-long personal development programme for 16-30 year olds, based in the outdoors. It is completely free to you. We provide all of the transport, accommodation, food and outdoor clothing – all you have to do is turn up! We can even help you with bus fare to get you to our front door.
Your Journey begins with a friendly, no obligation chat to one of our staff members. This could be at our offices or at a location more local to you. This is an opportunity to tell you more about the programme and answer any of those questions like “where do you go outdoors?” “what outdoor activities do you do?” or “do I have to wear that!?”
If you like us and what we offer, we invite you in for a kit fitting (we supply all of the outdoor clothing and equipment you will need) and a Support Plan that will help us provide you with the right sort of support to you on the Programme.
On all stages of your Journey you will have support and assistance when you need it. We understand that changing your life and your behaviours can be tough! To aid your progression through the programme, we will have a 1:1 session at the end of each stage to check in on your support plan and chart your development.
If your are working with a young person that you think would benefit from involvement with Venture Scotland, please give us a call on on 0131 661 6786 for Edinburgh and 0141 552 8173 for Glasgow to discuss next steps.
