We believe every young person deserves a positive future regardless of their past.

For more than sixty years, we have been working with some of England’s most disadvantaged, disaffected and forgotten young people, providing challenge and inspiration, building confidence and helping them to take control of their future.

Building on the skills of our founders, the team that conquered Everest, we now use all kinds of activities - from rock climbing and canoeing to drama and
film making – to challenge, inspire and motivate.

We give young people the skills they need to face their problems,
tackle them head-on and succeed where they may have previously failed.

We empower them to conquer their fears, to express themselves,
to trust and respect others.

We equip them to become better citizens, making a positive contribution
to their communities and our society.
