Xplore Tri-Yak Adventures, is a not for profit organisation who serve the community with their sailing skills and personal engagement. They offer their boats and equipment for 'Sailing On' Bush Adventure Therapy Program and volunteers give of their time in tuition and mentoring. They share YaFT's vision and are companions on the journey for young people and families adventuring, learning and living well together.
YaFT welcomes suitable volunteers who meet the criteria for working with young people in the programs offered. YaFT provides training days for novice to experienced sailing volunteers. Training days have taken place on Port Phillip Bay and Lysterfield Lake. All volunteers hold current Working With Children Checks. A thorough induction process, including interview and referee checks is conducted prior to approval as volunteers. Robert partners with groups and volunteers whose belief in young people combined practical support enable this vital work.
Volunteers from 3fold and Compelled by Love, also Select Equip share their time with the No Limits small group therapy work in schools, giving three hours a week for 8 weeks in Phase One (including a day trip) and Phase Two (including a two day hike). We are deeply appreciative of volunteer's time and contribution.
No Limits in Schools
No Limits early intervention and leadership programs are most effective when supported by volunteer mentors who commit to approximately 3 hours per week for the eight weeks of each No Limits Phase. Sessions are held during class times at the school.
There are two 'in school' phases of eight weeks each.
Phase One has a low ropes / initiative day trip and Phase Two has a two day hike.
Currently 3fold have provided staff volunteers for the past 6 years. These volunteers have contributed significantly into many young peoples lives and have commented on the personal growth and satisfaction they receive as well
YaFT, the young people and families we support are encouraged to have community members involved in the
