Sprinkle some adventure into Christmas

This year we’re on a mission to make Christmas and beyond an adventure for our young people.

Many of our young people have told us that without the Youth Adventure Trust, they wouldn’t be getting outside or doing any extra curricular activities. In fact 98% of the families we work with are feeling the negative effects of the cost of living crisis, struggling to buy food, heat their homes or spend time with their children.

We know times are hard for everybody at the moment, but if you can spare anything at all this Christmas, please consider supporting the Youth Adventure Trust and sprinkling some adventure into a young person’s life.

I think YAT is an amazing organisation, that helps people who are not that fortunate to go on trips. YAT gives to children amazing times that you will never forget.

All of the donations we receive this Christmas will be used to help the young people on our Programme and Mentoring Scheme climb their own personal mountain. With your support we will help them realise they can achieve more than they think they can, empower them to make positive choices and give them the tools to fulfil their potential in life.

At a time when young people need us more than ever, a gift this Christmas will ensure we can continue to offer crucial support through adventure. No matter what the size of your donation, you can help us provide life-changing adventure and mentoring programmes to help even more vulnerable young people to fulfil their potential in the future.
