Self-confidence: Through physical, emotional and social challenges, the Navigator program helps young adults to learn more about their own potential. By spending time outside their comfort zone, young people will learn that they are capable of more than they realise and will develop the confidence to seek out and overcome challenges in their lives at home.
Initiative & motivation: The Navigator program teaches young people to take responsibility for their actions and mindsets. Outward Bound impels young people in to challenging experiences that force them to reconsider how much responsibility they are taking for their motivation and direction back at home. Navigator participants commonly express a willingness to try new experiences and to find challenges for themselves after their programs.
Awareness of self & others: By taking adolescents away from their normal social environment (school), we allow them to explore their identity away from everyday peer pressures. This not only allows them to develop an understanding of themselves, it allows them to take on new roles in a social setting and to understand how they can affect those around them.
Leadership development: The Navigator program offers adolescents the opportunity to lead in a challenging yet supportive environment. By practicing their leadership in the outdoors, young people will experience immediate feedback and tangible results from their actions. Our expert instructors offer one-to-one mentoring to suit the natural style of each participant.
