Funds raised in the 2017 XL Catlin End-to-End will, in part, support Raleigh which provides young Bermudians aged 17-25 with a structured, yearlong personal development programme using overseas expeditions, local training and ongoing coaching to challenge young Bermudians to harness their full potential and develop skills for life.
Raleigh recruits young people who may be at risk of not reaching their full potential, at a crossroads, or at a plateau in their lives. Their programme identifies a small group who are looking for something to be different in their lives, and provides them with intensive, long-term individualised support to provide them with the sense of purpose, hope and belonging.
Other ETE 2017 charities include Adult Education School, Age Concern, and Greenrock. In addition, participants will be able to vote for a special “people’s choice” recipient for E2E funding (choosing between Bermuda Society for the Blind, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and YouthNet).
