The Navigate Program

The Navigate Program is an outdoor adventure program that works with the Veteran community to provide meaningful support to Veterans as they navigate civilian life.

Funded by the Office for Veterans (Victorian State Government) and guided by Veterans, the Navigate Program is an evolving initiative of Adventure Works Australia (AWA) and Geelong Adventure Specialists (GAS).

What is involved?

GAS & Adventure Works are looking for Veterans to join this innovative program. People who join will get the chance to experience the health and wellbeing benefits of time spent outdoors, as well as contribute to how the program is designed and offered to future groups.

Participation involves:

two introductory adventure days;

a three-night canoe paddling journey; and,

one follow-up adventure day.

Participating Veterans will be asked to:

participate in, and comment on all components of the program; and,

share personal insights with the team about how the program might help/hinder Veterans to improve their health in various areas including mental health, physical health and social health.

When is it?

June – July 2024, Recruitment.

July – August 2024, Information sharing and planning.

September – October 2024, Program dates to be confirmed.

November 2024: Follow up evaluation with participants.

How much is it?

The Program itself is free, funded by the Office for Veterans.

We supply all the equipment, safety clothing and food for participating. Incidental expenses might include transport to some program activities or to a central pick-up point, putting aside the time to participate, and any personal items you choose to purchase instead of borrow.
