What is it?

The bursary is a form of additional support which is available to every young person who finishes the main Youth Adventure Programme up to the end of Year 11. It’s to help you where we can, after your time on the programme, to get involved in further activities, clubs or opportunities. It could be help to get an item of clothing, kit or equipment for an activity, membership fees to a club, travel costs to get there, or a one-off cost linked to an organised activity, club or event.

Thank you for helping me purchase a new bag and money belt which both came in very handy on my Scout expeditionDaniel, age 15

I would like to say a massive thanks to Youth Adventure Trust for giving me this opportunity. I have really enjoyed going to the gym with friends. It gives me somewhere to release my frustrations and stress from school and looking after my mum. It has also helped to improve my confidence hugely.Ben, age 16
