Venture

This is a project run by Action

Join this project » 

Venture is a project that involves taking groups of teenagers on weekends away in the English countryside. It gives them a wonderful opportunity that they may not otherwise get. They are able to try many kinds of outdoor activities such as rock climbing, archery, mountain biking or caving, and other activities designed to improve teamwork and leadership skills. The volunteers get to take part too! We aim to run three weekend trips over the course of the year; the first trip is to the Yorkshire Dales from the 24th to the 26th of February 2017. All costs of food, accommodation and most activities are covered for volunteers, and all volunteers are briefed prior to the trip to enable them to work successfully on the project.

All of the young people we take are from a school in Leeds and are 14 to 16 years old.

The project should be a lot of fun and we hope that you choose to get involved with us!
