Six Week Residential Reform Program in the Tasmanian Wilderness
BEAST Ascent is a six-week, residential program for young people, set in the Tasmanian Wilderness. The transformative and intensive residential program is designed to empower and support young individuals aged 11 to 17 years old. BEAST ASCENT focuses on building personal growth, reforming behaviours, building leadership capabilities, engaging in community service, and intensive mentoring.
Set in the Tasmanian Wilderness, participants spend six weeks travelling across Tasmania, engaging in a range of physically and mentally challenging activities that are developed to enhance their social and personal capabilities. This unique program is at the forefront of providing crucial support and mentorship to those who need it most. Over years of delivery, participants recall this program as the most memorable experience of their life, pushing them to their limits, while creating the necessary change they needed.
The program is open to all young people aged 11-17 years, however, referrals are prioritised from young people who are at risk of entering the youth justice system.
There are three intakes each year for BEAST ASCENT. Intakes are limited in numbers. Please contact our office directly for the information pack and to express interest. BEAST ASCENT is an application process and all participants must be accepted via this process to ensure the program will benefit the young person and their needs:
