Changing Lives by Engaging Young People through Positive and Personalised Learning Experiences

ABOUT US


The aim of A4S is to transform and improve the lives of young people who are struggling, or have struggled in life so far, whether academically, socially or economically. We provide alternative education for significantly disadvantaged young people who find it difficult to access mainstream education; have been excluded; or have been involved in crime and anti-social behaviour.

CORE ACTIVITIES


Through a programme of personalised training, using a range of experiential, often outdoor activities (such as angling & environmental maintenance), we help these students to (re)engage with education; gain valuable life-changing qualifications; work positively with others; and build confidence, self-esteem and aspirations.
