Young people who want to learn to be more independent and to overcome social problems while also getting a chance to travel to an overseas country can apply for a survival skills programme before January 31.

Successful applicants to the Raleigh Bermuda Venturers’ Programme must be Bermudian and aged between 17 and 24.

Raleigh Bermuda will subsidise local training and a local or overseas expedition with a value of up to $12,000 for successful applicants.

A spokeswoman for Raleigh Bermuda said: “Raleigh Bermuda’s Venturers’ Programme is a robust, intensive, survival-skills based programme that also addresses the various social issues our young Bermudians maybe facing such as gangs, violence, abuse, drugs, alcohol, low self-esteem and lack of motivation.

“Raleigh Bermuda believes in creating safe spaces for young Bermudians to help them personally develop in life as they transition into young adulthood. Raleigh Bermuda offers local residential training camps and the opportunity to travel overseas for an expedition.

“Additionally, individualised coaching helps the participants to address their situation in life, discover what is holding them back and set goals for the future.

“After returning from expedition, Raleigh helps to equip our young Bermudians by giving them skills that employers are looking for. We provide them with life skills which includes financial/budgeting, communication, problem solving and emotional/mental coping skills. We believe in helping them to build their confidence, resiliency, and leadership skills as they transition into adulthood.”

Interviews with applicants will take place next month to assess scholarship eligibility and acceptance.
