Solid Ground Leadership programme with The Salvation Army

We recently ran a Solid Ground Leadership programme for The Salvation Army.

This was a real privilege, as we believe that investing in the development of young leaders expands their horizons for engaging not only in their community but further afield.

Loaded UK - working with The Salvation Army

We helped train and equip their young leaders by providing them with an adventurous mission to complete. Each individual had an opportunity to experience the sharp end of leadership during the journey.

The groups grappled with activities such as sea kayaking, climbing, trekking, caving, gorge walking, coasteering and camping out wild can be included.

These practical assignments provided a practical channel for creative expressions and innovation, which built on key concepts and leadership teaching - the young people applied what they learned!

The programme took the  people out of their comfort zones and into an adventure of personal discovery and growth.

It was intense!

Here's what some of them said:

Seeing others challenged and overcoming fears. I learned so many new things about myself, leadership and particularly learning to trust others.
— Simon Boer
A chance to learn, to fail, and to be encouraged, the mix of adventure and teaching has been the perfect combination.
— Mat Perkins – Salvation Army Regional Youth Leader
Awesome a life-changing experience, Thank you so much.
— Val Prescott – Salvation Army Officer
