As a youth development nonprofit, we use year-round outdoor, arts, sports and a range of other engaging activities to afford students with enduring mentor-based relationships. We mix outdoor experiential learning, character development, community service, values-based leadership development, social justice advocacy, and peer mentoring to encourage our youth to transform themselves and others around them for the better.
OUR APPROACH: A systematic placement of “cool” adults who genuinely CARE and LISTEN to young people in order to prepare them to make ethical and moral choices throughout their lives.
