Social Development Programme
A Peak Social Development Programme is tailored to suit the needs of the young person or group. These bespoke courses combine outdoor activities, arts workshops, and education. Courses can vary from a couple of weeks to a full academic year.
When they join us the young people very often exhibit challenging behavior or are facing a number of difficulties in their lives. The activities are structured to give progression, offering challenges, inspiration and act as a tool for breaking down barriers, establishing boundaries, and opening up communication. Over time, steps are made to increase confidence and boost self-esteem.
