The 5 Acre Project
The 5 Acre Project is Trek’s adolescent program- running across two days every week over a school term.
5 Acres has a carefully developed framework designed to address the impacts of developmental trauma, ill mental health and the myriad of barriers that young people can face causing disengagement from education, loss of healthy connections, wellbeing and belonging. 5 Acres is designed to build a sense of felt safety for young people in order to support the development and strengthening of personal capabilities and capacities, transferable skills and knowledge through the hands-on programming ensuring equity and access can be achieved.
In addition to our therapeutic, recovery frameworks, each young person is individually case-managed to ensure valuable interventions, referrals or supports are put in place to support successful outcomes in education, training, employment, health and wellbeing and community connection.
