The majority of our applicants are referred to YAw via SCHOOLS. Teachers are encouraged to put forward the names of students they think would benefit from an outdoor adventure experience.

 

Who should I choose?

 

 

Below is a list of suggested reasons why you might want to select a student for this program:

 

  • They excel at more physical activity and less so at academic studies.
  • They have stagnated at school and really need a challenge
  • They are looking at ways of improving themselves
  • They do not mix very well with other students
  • They are not responding to traditional teaching methods
  • They have done well and deserve a reward
  • They are shy and need a boost of confidence
  • They may have a financially disadvantaged background and therefore have missed-out
    on trips or opportunities before
  • They are in need of broader horizons
  •  They have been in trouble and need some time to reflect on their decision making
  • They need to get away from computer screens - physical activity would be beneficial
  • They are looking to improve their leadership skills
  • They have an interest in nature, agriculture or conservation

 

As you can see, the reasons for nominations are broad, and we would welcome your own reasons for nominations too.

 

Please also refer to the checklist of our Selection Criteria.
