Edventure in two minutes
We link education, community and enterprise to create a win-win-win scenario
We run experiential courses for diverse young adults 18-35.
Our core 10 week course where students learn by setting up a community enterprise that tackles a local need, followed by optional 6-month of start-up support for their own initiative.
ENTERPRISES & INITIATIVES
We set up satellite community enterprises and projects with our students, creating long-term benefits such as employment opportunities, positive local impact, and income for Edventure. For example, we created:
THE WELSH MILL HUB
A community space providing free workspace for young adults, and the home for other community groups such as the Men’s Shed which works with older, isolated men.
THE COMMUNITY FRIDGE
The first public fridge in the UK to share food waste.
SHARE – A LIBRARY OF THINGS
A shop providing people, particularly those on low incomes, access to quality household, DIY and leisure items, and encouraging local people to share more.
What makes Edventure work are local people and businesses who gift their time and expertise to provide mentoring and opportunities for our students, while our students use their energy and creativity to help build a strong and resilient town.
We share everything we learn in the form of toolkits, training and consultancy to support others to run edventure programmes and enterprises or build similar initiatives.
