Otautahi Southern Cross Outward Bound Course 2009

Postby mtbrat on Tue 13/Jan/09 9:39am

Otautahi Southern Cross is a 21 day Outward Bound Classic course for young adults from the different ethnic communities in Christchurch.

Aim
To explore personal development, cultural identity and cultural diversity as part of an Outward Bound Classic Course. This course is aimed at a culturally diverse range of Christchurch young people (18-26 years old), who are not in secondary education and can be away from their family, work, training or education for 21 days.

Over the 21 day adventure you will experience all outdoor elements and activities Outward Bound has to offer, in depth. However, skills such as sailing, kayaking, bush and navigation will become second place to the challenge and belief instilled that there is more in you and you can achieve your dreams if you persevere.

When
2 – 22 August 2009

Cost
This course is fully funded. Participants will need to cover the cost of completing their medical.

The course costs are sponsored, so this is also an opportunity for those who may not normally have the ability to experience this life-changing course. The partner agencies do what they can to minimise the cost for the young people to attend.

Criteria of participants
• 18-26 yrs old
• A variety of ethnic backgrounds (including but not predominantly Pakeha)
• Preferably involved in the local community.
• Living within the Christchurch City Council boundaries, and likely to stay on for some time.
• Meet Outward Bounds medical, fitness and criminal history criteria
