In School Programs
At Adventureworks we recognise that the transition from young boy or girl into adulthood takes place over the length of high school years and will not happen in one school camping program or on an adventure weekend with a parent. There are many opportunities for significant and transformative experiences along the way and the transition happens over many years.
Drawing on our experience of working with schools and young people, Adventureworks provides their own developed and inspiring INTO ADULTHOOD educational programs.
These programs are designed to work within the school environment supporting teachers and the whole community to prepare and support their students transition safely into young healthy adults with a sense of:
- Connection – I know myself and see my place in the world
- Resilient – I know how to manage adversity & remain true to myself
- Capability –know my strengths and how to use them
Our programs can be delivered on or off site as one off workshops or a fully integrated 12 month in school program.
Whatever your needs, we can tailor a bespoke INTO ADULTHOOD program to suit your school in guiding your students transition to adulthood.
The programs can include a wide range of outdoor adventure and in school activities.
