Youth Adventure Trust (YAT) take Year 7 to 9 pupils from Swindon and the Wiltshire area on a series of adventure camps and day activities that take place over 3 years.
YAT aim to help the young people they support by introducing them to outdoor adventure with a combination of outdoor residential adventure camps and day activities over a 3 school year period. Through multiple touch points the young people are given hope, confidence and skills to face their personal challenges which are often considerable. One Headmaster from Warminster said of the YAT programme:
“It turned Daniel around from a boy at risk of permanent exclusion to a boy thoroughly engaged with his schoolwork who is now a pleasure to teach”
WWMT support the coastal camp element of the programme wih a grant of £24,000 over 3 years.
