It helps participants to view crisis situations in a less daunting way by re-framing adversities.

A spokesman for Essex Boys and Girls Club: “Both beneficial and damaging effects of actions are recognised and the young people are taught to set reasonable and manageable goals to deal with problems.

“All events take place away from the school setting and are delivered by fully vetted and trained youth workers.

“This informality allows the young people to open up to trusted adults and overcome fears and barriers to progress.”

The project has seen youngsters from across Tendring go on amazing trips including to the Lake District and Wales.
