Programmes

We are currently delivering the following programmes:

Positive Pathways

"I was suffering from severe anxiety and depression before I started on Positive Pathways. I spent most of my time in bed.

Since I have been involved in the programme, I have grown in confidence. Being a mentor has taught me new skills and I started volunteering with different  organisations. I am now starting university degree at Warwick and am really excited about it." Beth
 

Our flagship programme, 'Positive Pathways' has been funded by Orbit Heart of England and Whitefriars Housing. It was developed as a result of a feasibility study conducted by Wild Earth in the communities of Foleshill, Coventry. Our pilot programme ran successfully in 2013-14 and we are now delivering a 3 year programme in Coventry. We have won the Central Region Award for Excellence in Youth Involvement by TPAS - Tenant Engagement Experts - 4 March 2016 and were shorlisted for the  national finals.

Positive Pathways runs with cohorts of 8-10 young people, 1 day a week, over 6 weeks and delivers bushcraft and survival skills, life skills and employability skills.

Please note that you can refer a young person (or self-refer) on both programmes. If you refer for both 'Positive Pathways' and 'Nature Beats', you will be on a 2 days-a-week course for 6 weeks. You can use either referral forms and state that you'd like to do both.


Nature Beats

"I felt like I had a new life in my body. I was happy for the rest of the day. I looked at myself and thought that this isn't the guy who was lying in bed all day. I felt like I was somebody else. It made me smile and I don't smile that easily." - Liam
 

Nature Beats is about making music in nature and inspired by nature. It is an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, away from the daily stresses and pressures and discover what it brings. Apart from activities that help you refocus your life by getting to know yourself better, the experiential project aims at building skills and confidence to take the next step in employability or further education / training that you choose to do. The entire journey is recorded through sound, music and soundscapes.

We deliver workshops on music making, bushcraft, survival skills, employability skills (writing a CV, interviews and applications), volunteering and more.
