We featured the work of Venture Scotland in our June podcast and, as promised, here is the extended version of our interview with CEO David Brackenridge and ‘ambassador’ Callum O’Brien. [Approx 16 minutes]
Venture Scotland has become Scotland’s only provider of long term, outdoor based, personal development for disadvantaged young people. Each year they support 100 young people aged 16-30 to develop new life skills and build confidence, improve their mental and physical health and increase access to employment, training, education and volunteering. They do this by providing a 12-month intensive outdoor based personal development programme known as “The Journey”.
