Every young person has potential.
Every young person has the potential to be an awesome young adult. Sometimes it is clear and sometimes you need help to find the person you want to become.
Our programs provide space to learn, change and grow into your potential
The journey to adulthood is changing.
In our 25 years of working with young people we know things are changing, the pathway to adulthood is becoming increasingly tricky to navigate.
In response we have recreated our programs to meet the changing needs of young people.
All AW programs are underpinned by a Rite of Passage framework with a health and wellbeing focus.
Every adventure is unique
We don’t do one-size-fits-all programmes. Using our reputable framework, we have the freedom to tailor the look and feel of every programme.
We work alongside organisations to gain a clear view of success and then make sure we deliver it.

AdventureWorks’ professionalism and collaborative nature have seen us work together to develop a model that works especially for our College and our context. What initially began as a program for Year 9 students is now developing over several year groups to create a cohesive and continuous program. Adventure Works’ programs are practical and experiential, allowing students to learn and develop through discussion, real life experiences and reflection. Their facilitators are very well trained, and adept at talking to young people at their own level. They create atmospheres and environments that are safe and comfortable for students – both physically and emotionally. One of their biggest assets is their willingness to evaluate and discuss openly the process and programs they implement – they are constantly looking for ways to further improve and develop what are already amazing programs.
“Dear Scottie, Mary and the AdventureWorks Team,
Thank you so much for making our Rite Journey Abyss camp a tremendous experience for both students and staff. Our young men, although exhausted, have had nothing but great things to say about the impact the camp had on them. They were grateful for so many opportunities presented to them. Opportunities such as:
- The ability connect with their peers in an environment outside the classroom.
- Sharing opinions and areas of their lives in a safe way with ‘blokes who get them’ (direct quote)
- Being pushed beyond their comfort zones.
The students truly valued the way they were encouraged to accept challenge and responsibility rather than being chastised for ‘incorrect decisions.’
Your team were fantastic and provided an amazing Into Adulthood experience for our students. Our staff were very impressed with the way the facilitation of the groups worked and they have all expressed their desire to utilise similar techniques in their own teaching practise.
Thank you for all your efforts in constructing our experience. I recognise it was an enormous feat, especially at this time of year for you all. I am truly grateful for your commitment to our programme, your knowledge and expertise has been invaluable. We look forward to using you next year.”
I have changed how I see a lot of the people in my cohort and I’ve become more willing to face my fears with the help of others
I’ve learnt a lot about strengths I have and the strengths that I could improve to be a better person. I’ve learnt to express myself and open up a little more. I’ve learnt about the kind of person I want to be…
I have learnt that when you open up to more people and don’t judge a book by it’s cover you meet really fabulous, nice caring people. I have also learnt that I have great perseverance
I need to take care of myself more. I need more empathy. I should love myself more
I have learned that walking through the bush relaxes me and makes me reflect on myself. I got to find out that people do like me and I shouldn’t feel intimidated by others….
I have learned that I could open up to the boys in my group and that it is okay to show emotion
I feel closer to people I didn’t know and have a deeper understanding of the problems in other people’s lives…
