aspire module

 

It’s not easy growing up in New Zealand today. The Salvation Army and The Warehouse Group know that life can be tough for young people, so we’ve teamed up to develop a great new programme called ‘ASPIRE’.

ASPIRE aims to help more than 500 young people develop the skills, confidence, knowledge and networks they need to successfully address challenges and achieve their goals.

This is a FREE programme funded by The Warehouse Group.

ASPIRE PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Led by experienced Salvation Army youth workers in centres and schools around the country, the year-long ASPIRE programme involves:

weekly sessions in groups of 10, over 32 weeks
a 3-day adventure programme of tramping, abseiling, caving, white water rafting and more, led by qualified outdoor instructors at The Salvation Army Blue Mountain Adventure Centre
developing teamwork and project skills by planning and implementing a community project to address a local issue
ending with goal setting and a graduation celebration
ASPIRE is based on the Circle of Courage youth development model. It provides a fun, supportive environment for personal development, helping youth connect positively to others, achieve and master essential life skills, take responsibility for their decisions, and live with purpose and generosity.
