YouthTrek Trial 2010
In 2010 CrossTrek designed and Facilitated a trial of the YouthTrek Personal Dvelopment Program hosted at the Gulf Christian College.
The YouthTrek program ran for 3.5 hours a week, for a total of 8 consecutive weeks. The YouthTrek program commenced in week 2, Term 4 (9 October) and was finalised on the 27 November. The Sessions were run on the Friday of the week from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. Certificates of Participation and completion were presented to all participants at the end of year College Presentation Night.
The YouthTrek Program was made up of the following areas of content. These were meant to be introductions to the different areas and not in depth training and assessment, with the main focus being Participant enjoyment and engagement with the program, not on specific results relating to each area.
Undertake a practical community service – Environmental Project: bird surveys
Undertake a hobby/skill – Bird Watching/Photography
Undertake a physical recreation – Bush Walking
Participants carried all their own equipment for the bird watching and photography as well as all equipment required to cook meals out in the field. This program was designed and facilitated by Ross Harrold in a voluntary capacity with the help of another adult volunteer, and there was no cost to participants, except if they chose to enrol in the Duke of Ed Award Program.
