Outdoors NSW & ACT and Members

Overview:

The AOK program clearly had a significant impact on young people. Participants displayed increased motivation for active recreation following participation. Once engaged in active recreation, they are more likely to be motivated to continue participating. Overall, the AOK program experience fostered personal growth in participants. In addition provided a boost for businesses in NSW to showcase their offerings to their local community, with the aim of continuing participation. We identified barriers to ongoing participation but resilience was was a key attribute developed by participants.
