Personal Development for Young People

What we do

Venture Scotland runs an outdoor-based personal development programme for young people aged 16-30, who face complex and difficult problems.

We build the confidence and skills of young people and aim to empower each individual we work with to make positive and lasting changes in their lives.

Our volunteering ethos

Our team of personal development staff work in partnership with over 150 volunteers to lead our programme. Our volunteers motivate, inspire and mentor young people. We encourage young people to volunteer as they progress through our programme, enabling them to make the leap from being supported to making a contribution to others. Whilst volunteering, young people are supported to access education, training and employment.

Where we work

Our programme is run out of two centres in Edinburgh and Glasgow although young people get involved from across the Central Belt of Scotland. Our main base for residentials is a Highland bothy (mountain hut) in Glen Etive.
