Life Skill Programs
At Pathfinders, we deliver tailored outdoor and adventure-based programs that promote social inclusion and enable healing for vulnerable young people. Our programs are designed to be accessible and promote pro-social behaviours, internal capacities, and community connections. Depending on the needs of the young person or group, our programs can range from a few hours to a few days in length. We believe that by providing supportive and nurturing environments, we can help young people overcome adversity and build a brighter future.
Our therapeutic adventure programs are open to young people aged 10-17. We conduct both group and individual programs. We have limited spaces available so it’s important to make a referral as soon as possible to secure a spot. These are fee for service programs.

Step Out Community Access Service
Step Out offers a range of programs to meet the needs of eligible service users across the age spectrum.
The service users of Step Out have a wide range of disabilities, and many of them are high-needs. Step Out’s client base must meet a certain criteria and is mainly referred by the Katherine office of the Department of Health’s Aged and Disability Program. Step Out support workers strive towards the independence of service users by assisting in tasks, as opposed to completing the tasks themselves. Step Out staff members do not wear uniforms and drive unmarked vehicles to further aid in the integration and acceptance of people with disabilities in the Katherine community.
Step Out delivers community access, group and individual programs, as well as managing a respite house. This latter currently has supported accommodation for two service users and two-week blocks of respite for two additional service users. Each of these services encompasses a life-skills component that focuses on service user’s empowerment and independence.
