Fund title: Outward Bound Skills for Life Award

Focus of fund/fund aims:

Support for 16-19 year olds living in Devon to attend an outward bound course in Summer 2017.

Application deadline:

10 April 2017

Fund description:

Young people living in Devon aged 16-19 can apply for a place on a summer outward bound experience with 100% funding from the Sir Francis Chichester Trust.

The course is designed to help participants make an effective transition into sixth form, further education or work and is a chance to have a life-shaping adventure with people from all over the world, to know what they are truly capable of achieving and to stand out in a crowded market place.

The courses are held at the Outward Bound centres in the Lake District, Wales and Scotland and are open to young people who live in Devon (including Plymouth and Torbay) who are aged 16-19 at the time of the course (July/August).

The Trust looks for candidates that wouldn’t normally have a chance to undertake anything of this nature and will be able to enjoy and benefit from the experience.
