Baptist Care (SA) Inc – Tumbelin Go

For: 

Through the Tumbelin Go initiative, young people will take part in an adventure therapy program and will receive case management support and career planning.

Participants will take part in a range of group activities, which may include abseiling, bush walking, kayaking and mountain biking. These activities will focus on addressing personal barriers, increasing participants’ confidence and developing their job and teamwork skills. This will assist in building their motivation to look for work and attend job interviews, and help them remain engaged in the workplace and seek feedback on their performance.

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in group activities, which may include adventure-based experiential learning and skills development through day activities or overnight expeditions. Participants will be assisted to develop a Career Plan and, where required, provided with one-on-one counselling and/or career coaching sessions.

Participants will then undertake a one-on-one review of their Career Plan and be assisted to develop an agreed pathway plan. Where required, participants can access further support after they have exited the program.
