Youth offenders

Youth offenders – We start your group off with an initial taster session to give them a feel for climbing, before moving onto a six week learn to climb course where we start teaching the young people the basics.

The sessions for youth offenders aim to improve communication and team work as well as building the confidence of individuals by engaging them in a practical and challenging environment. We take them out of their comfort zone and add an element of excitement, which fuels their enthusiasm and willingness to participate!

We can also run sessions for youth offenders using a mix of the following activities, which can be used as an incentive to reward positive behaviours.

  • Team building tasks - Divided into teams and tasked with a challenge, group members will have to work together, communicate and problem solve to complete the tasks against the clock.
  • Climbing - A great approach to try out climbing, abseiling and belaying – rewarding and a great trust builder.
  • Bouldering and low level traversing - Really easy to get into and perfect for those worried about heights. You’ll play some great, fun games that are rewarding and brilliant for the younger kids!

We believe Boulders has been a huge success. As a diversionary activities team within the youth offending service, we aim to engage young people in activities in the hope it will steer them away from anti-social behaviour.
