What is the 'new Trails' programme?
The Active Connections New Trails programme is an activity-based intervention service which supports the participants and their families. We use a range of adventure activities in combination with Brief Solution Focused Coaching (SFBT) to help participants identify and action their solutions to their difficulties. New Trails helps 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. The aim is to instill confidence, strength, new perspectives and skills for dealing with the transition to adulthood.
The Active Connections team knows that everyone has the ability to overcome adversity. We believe that parents and guardians play a pivotal role for the progression of our participants; with this in mind, we offer an intervention service with the aim of supporting appropriate, effective and lasting change for participants.
