aboy knot tyingWith the end of the season drawing near, we have already started to take provisional bookings from youth groups interested in a character education residential for 2016.

Cirdan specialises in working with disadvantaged groups aged 12 to 25 and offers grants to help subsidise the cost of the voyage fee. Character education to help young people learn to face challenges, and overcome adversity is now recognised as being essential if they are to thrive in to day’s society. We can help youth leaders achieve this with their young people through an experience that provides transferable skills and memories to last a life time plus the opportunity to gain RYA accreditation.

We have received extremely positive feedback from the voyages that have sailed this season. See some feedback we have received below;

“This had an effect on me and the learners whether it was personal, social or academic. It has engaged students in a way, I feel we couldn’t do in school” – Leader, Staffordshire 

“I learnt not to argue and just get on with things” – Young Person, Stoke 

 “A very positive and enjoyable experience that allowed students to step out of their comfort zones and experience a taste of adventure – Leader, Essex  

“I went to places I had never been before. I hope I get the opportunity to do this again”  Young Person, Hartlepool  

“A few of the young people built up enough confidence to represent their views in group sessions” – Leader, Suffolk

“I learnt how to believe in myself, work as a team and be adventurous” – Young Person, Lincolnshire
