Participants, in teams of 15, spend one week away from home at a residential centre engaging in outward bound and physical activities; they then spend one week in University type residence developing their key skills. These two phases do include unsociable working hours. In the third and fourth weeks young people design, research and implement a Social Action Project – something done to positively impact their local communities. The programme culminates with a graduation ceremony where groups showcase their achievements.
