Podcast Extra – Venture Scotland

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”.
