Training courses to develop skills for mentor leadership
This grant will fund senior first aid and a child-safe environments course which are essential for wilderness therapy training mentors.
Operation Flinders runs quality wilderness programs for young people at risk. Involving a 100km trek over 8 days, young people identified as being at risk face demanding outdoor challenges and ongoing support. This helps develop self confidence, motivation, leadership, teamwork and responsibility so they may grow as valued members of the community. It's a unique, and in many cases, life-changing experience.
