Our programmes are specifically designed to support young people of all genders aged 13-18 in the journey from childhood to adulthood in a supported, mentored way. We work closely with parents & guardians to support them to support their young person in this transformative experience.

Why are they needed?

Do you remember the challenges in your life as a teen? The awkward years between 13 and 18, when you were trying to make sense of the adult world?

How would it have been for you to have wise, reliable adults other than your parents to talk freely with?

Do you remember, or perhaps you’ve seen with other children, how quickly they turn towards their peers, and become hard to access?

Would it have made a difference if you had a friendship group of peers that accepted each other in vulnerability, saw your gifts and supported your growth?

Imagine if you had learned communication skills, conflict resolution, listening and being heard; knowing your voice has a valid place, knowing you are worthy. Would you have felt more capable if you learned to trust yourself, your friends and your own capacities?

How would you have felt if you had also learned to make a fire, track animals, build structures? Strong? Resilient? Capable?

If this sounds like something you wish you had had, or something you know a young person now would gain from, please support us. Donate to your past self here and help us by sharing this with families who have a teen in this age range.

These bursaries are prioritized for participants from underrepresented communities including (but not limited to) Indigenous peoples from around the world, people from refugee/migrant families, people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBTQ2IA+, people transitioning out of foster care, among other communities. We recognize that systemic barriers, along with the cost, can make this program inaccessible for many people.
