New Trails Programme

In a world filled with considerable parental and peer pressure, our activity courses help youths, teens and young adults connect their desire for more freedom and independence with the reality that they must take on the responsibility that comes with that freedom.


Active Connections activity courses are designed to replace the often negative challenges of the teen years with extremely positive ones. The participants’ experience “unfamiliar territory” which instils confidence, builds strength and helps teens develop new perspectives and skills for deaing with the

transition to adulthood. With a focus on increasing self-awareness, communication and goal setting, young people develop the values and skills needed to create and maintain a healthier self-image, trustworthy relationships and productive life skills.


Active Connections instructors know that everyone has the ability to overcome adversity. Our staff team have an unconditional positive regard for the young people and the families we work with. We believe that parents and guardians play a pivotal role for the progression of our participants; with this in mind we offer a family intervention service with the aim of supporting appropriate, effective and lasting change for participants.
