MY Adventure is a social enterprise and the work we do across our projects achieves positive impacts in communities.
Our projects achieve a range of social impacts: from programmes like My Academy helping young people reach their potential, to guided cycle rides making cycling accessible in Edinburgh.
Our work started with communities in North Edinburgh. Now our social impact reaches communities across the country.
Our annual Youth Work Games gives young people from across Scotland the chance to take part in competitive, outdoors events in a supportive environment.
In 2017 we had 10 teams of over 100 young people take part in 8 events. The Games, inspired by the London Olympics in 2012, gives young people age 12 to 19 a chance to gain confidence, develop teamwork and experience challenges in a safe environment.
The MY Adventure team are trained in youth work, community work, and social work and highly qualified in the outdoors. This provides us with a unique, diverse team.
Thanks to the support of our funders, from the European Social Fund to Edinburgh City Council, we can provide opportunities for different community groups, including schools, youth groups and families.
