Venture Trust deploys an intensive community and wilderness-based personal and skills development programme designed to move highly disengaged and disadvantaged young people (including many involved in crime and young care leavers) into work or training. Venture Trust aims to help individuals overcome the complicated or chaotic life circumstances that they face by developing the confidence, motivation and life skills they need to make positive life changes.
Venture Trust just has completed Impetus-PEF’s Driving Impact workshop – designed to help them focus on developing the programme and performance systems needed to drive impact. Currently, just over 60% who participate in the wilderness expedition exit into employment, education or training – a high percentage for a very challenged group of young people.
