We partner with social service organisations to help people reconnect with themselves
Partnering with organisations and community groups that work in the social service sector of Aotearoa is our passion. Our community programmes can enhance your already fabulous programmes, services and outcomes by helping you engage with your clients in adventurous and challenging wilderness spaces.
Whether you’re looking for a simple and fun adventure experience, or an in-depth facilitated programme, we can tailor a programme that will complement your focus. For participants with therapeutic needs we offer programmes with specialist staff and a strengths-based approach that we call Adventure Therapy. The two main areas of our Adventure Therapy programmes are in youth development and strengthening families.
Our programmes help your participants reconnect with themselves, their fellow adventurers, and the natural environment by providing opportunities for them to succeed and thrive in new and unexpected ways. Experiencing success like this often ignites a newfound resolve in a person and desire to engage in your programme and services as well.
We have had the privilege of partnering with social agencies working in:
- Youth justice
- Youth health
- Addiction support services
- Mental health
- Fostering care and support
- Youth work
- Intellectual disability support
- Youth residential care facilities
- Alternative education
- Family budgeting services
- Family counseling services
“We work with the most vulnerable families in the community.
... We work alongside low income families, families with historical and current abuse issues, families with on-going earthquake trauma and health issues… All our dealings with Adventure Specialties team in Christchurch has been positive and they have provided programmes which sit well alongside ours.”
