In your first week, you’ll live away from home and nurture your adventurous side. Whether you take on the high ropes, wild waves, or scale a wall, one thing we can guarantee is, by Friday night you’ll feel fearless (and pretty worn out)! Don’t worry, you’ll have the weekend back home to catch your breath. 


UAC (North Devon)
Slapton Ley (South Devon)

ACTIVITY: In phase one, it’s time to challenge yourself! Living with your new team mates at one of our residential locations, you’ll get to know some amazing people, You will also get to live away from home and take on a range of adrenaline-fueled activities.

Next up? Enjoy another five days away from home with your new-found mates. Get a crash course in adulting and pick up skills to set you up for life.

By the time you’re done, you’ll be speaking to a room full of people without freezing up and know a whole load more about what you want from life after school.

Residential Location: In Phase 2, young people will stay at one of two residential locations. This will vary depending on the location you visit in Phase 1.

Southampton Solent University Halls

Activity: Now is your chance to discover something new! You’ll be reunited with your team mates where you and your team will participate in different workshops such as Sports Coaching & Leadership, Performing Arts or Media & Film. 

Fuelled by your first two weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to use your voice and have a lasting impact. Want to see a change in your community? Countrywide? Or even globally?

Ok, so this is a VIPOYE (Very Important Part Of Your Experience), naturally. By this point, you’ll have achieved A LOT. Now it’s time to be recognised. You’ve got to go out with a bang, right? 

“…Is there an after party?”, we hear you scream. Yeah, kinda! 

It’s time to celebrate in style. We think it’s only right that you and your team should enjoy a well-earned reward for doing something truly inspirational in your community, collect your graduation certificate signed by the Prime Minister and enjoy a celebration with your friends.
