What we do

Challenge and Adventure logo for challenge groups

Challenge Groups

These are aimed primarily at young people aged from 12- 16 years old who are referred to us by agencies on the Isle of Wight. Many lack confidence and have low self-esteem; some have difficulties engaging with school; and some are at risk of getting into trouble with the authorities.

RON Groups

The Real Opportunities Now programme or ‘RON’ is a 2 week engagement programme aimed at 16-19 year olds who are not in education, employment or training (NEET).

Duke of Edinburgh's Award from Challenge and Adventure

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Challenge & Adventure invites all young people who complete a ‘Challenge’ course with us to remain engaged with the charity.

Those aged 14+ can choose to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with Challenge & Adventure

Every Friday evening during term time we invite young people who’ve completed a Challenge Course to take part in outdoor and other positive activities with Challenge & Adventure.
