Building stronger communities.
We are passionate about working with young people AND their communities,
because we know it’s not enough just to impact the individual.
We believe in a future where:
young people have a strong sense of belonging and purpose in their community as they journey into adulthood;
where families feel empowered to foster deeper connections by having conversations that matter;
where school communities value the skills needed to engage in authentic human connection;
where the whole community around our young people is full of adults who see the remarkable value of it’s youngest citizens.
Inspiring young people to discover who they are becoming.
At AW, we create space.
Space disconnected from the shackles of daily life. Space offered by the outdoors, that gives the physical and capacity required for learning, changing and growing. Using our experience, expertise and passion for the success of every individual, we give you the tools that guide you through the challenges offered in this space towards a better understanding of who you are.
Because the challenge of finding your path forces you to develop the confidence you need to walk it.
Committing to Action.
Embracing the weird stuff that makes us awesome.
We do things differently at AW, because if there is anything we have learned in our 20 years in the business, the status quo is not working. Gone are the days where a one size fits all approach is enough. We are committed to designing and delivering bespoke programmes to meet the needs of any customer, because we know every customer is different and we love it. We draw on evidence-based frameworks when designing our programmes and train our tribe the best ways to deliver them for maximum impact. We are not afraid to push the boundaries and embrace the weird, which is why you will enjoy adventure, theatre, challenge and fun on all of our programmes.
Keen to know more about those frameworks we mentioned? We don’t blame you, they are awesome.
AW Design Principles.
We don’t leave our program design to chance. We have used a combination of rigorous research and our 20+ years’ experience to develop AW’s nine Design Principles, which underpin 100% of our program design.
