To support young and disadvantaged people from the north east to develop their potential. To engage people in positive and healthy outdoor activities. To provide people with strategies regarding coping skills, understanding and managing risk, working with others, communicating, building self esteem and confidence. To create opportunities for people to take part in adventurous activities in a safe and supporting environment.
Firstly we help people to focus on themselves and the skills they need to develop in order to positively contribute to society. Secondly we help people to focus on themselves as part of a group/team/society and how working together contributes to the development of a community. Finally we help people to focus on the environment, not necessarily the rural environment although that is a major part of the work we do. We ask them to focus on caring for the environment.
We work with people who have complex issues and those who are potential community leaders. We help offenders to consider their offending behaviour and how that impacts on others - "Before I came to Mobex I treated people as objects, I now see them as people, as individuals" We work with young people involved in antisocial behaviour - "It's having nowt to do that causes problems - Mobex gives me something to do"
We require volunteers to help keep our stores area clean and tidy.
We are building a new yurt (outside classroom) and require volunteers to help with this.
