Youth Snow Camp:
Youth Snow Camp is a project taking young people from beginner to qualified Snow Sports instructors in one year, with volunteering and apprenticeship progression routes available at the end. Alongside learning to ski or snowboard, young people also have access to life skills training and mental health support.
Due to Louise’s commitment, she was chosen to receive a full bursary. With this, she was able to travel to Italy where she spent a week in the mountains, shadowing a qualified instructor as part of her Level 1 Sports Instructor qualification.
“I had the best experience of my life, I have made friends for life and a community I can come back to no matter what. Being in the mountains made me realise how much I want to travel and the life skills and lessons helped my confidence and gave me knowledge I can use in my future as I want to teach.”Louise O’Mahoney
