Journeys is a new charitable trust in Central Otago, with the vision of empowering girls through adventure in local wild places.
Half of what Journeys do is mountain biking, and the programme is delivered by volunteer 'ordinary inspiring women' who adventure weekly with girls aged 12-15. Based in Alexandra Journeys uses a fun and nurturing environment to provide a gateway into outdoor adventure.
Weekly sessions in the outdoors include a Spring/Summer season of mtbing, and an Autumn/Winter season of on foot adventures, exploring a variety of accessible local wild places with some challenges to help grow outdoor skills and mind skills.
Ground Effect is supporting the Trust with some kit to loan/give to the girls to break down barriers to participation.
