Chance For Change designs and delivers youth programmes in the UK and in Malawi.
UK Beyond Boundaries programme supports young people who have experienced hardship to develop the skills and confidence they need become independent young adults.
Through journeying, adventure and volunteering, in some of the UK's wildest landscapes young people learn and practice the skills they need to successfully live independently. Life skills such as budgeting, travel and cooking, alongside personal development skills such as team work, building positive relationships and managing stress and set-backs.
In 2018 we are offering three programmes that can either be done separately or as a package. This includes short introductory wilderness programmes in the Lake District, and a more challenging programme journeying to and volunteering on the Isle of Rum. Please get in touch to find out more firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rites of Passage works with young Malawians in townships in Lilongwe, where youth unemployment is extremely high and young people are at risk of becoming involved in crime. The programme builds towards each participant becoming an inspiring leader in their community, as advocates, ambassadors or entrepreneurs.
We deliver innovative personal development programme, informal education to local school children, take part in youth advocacy activities and contribute to the local economy through enterprise development. Exciting new projects have emerged from young participants, for example Rocket Wood a sustainable firewood project.
Since 2012, 1000 participants have completed the Rites of Passage programme and engaged with more than 8000 young people.
