Our programs use 8 components to create impactful change:
Students settle into their new home where they will live for the next 10 weeks. Students are responsible for caretaking of the facility and learning stewardship of their space. Students also complete a group long-term project which they leave behind for the next group to add on.
Group living is a key element in our programs. Living together naturally engages the students in conflict resolution, problem solving, empathy, and communication skills. This also creates close peer to peer learning and the confidence that comes from belonging to a supportive community. After spending 10 weeks together students walk away with lifelong friendships.
Our programs offer a range of adventure challenges to stretch out of their comfort zone and test their capabilities in activities like hiking, rafting, zip lining, surfing, kayaking, and yoga.
We partner with local organizations to create meaningful service opportunities where students learn about environmental sustainability and give back to the local community, connect with nature, and create a sense of belonging in the world. Activities include working with permaculture farms, wildlife conservations, animal rescue centers, sustainable farms, and eco-centers.
We work with local organizations to curate intentional cultural immersion activities where students can learn about diverse values, worldviews, skills, and life habits. Through this, students expand their worldview and enjoy a global perspective and new lens to view their lives at home.
With an exclusive curriculum focusing on core beliefs, resilience, interpersonal and relationship skills, the student will increase their self-esteem, communication skills, and build a foundation of personal values and tangible coping skills that will create long lasting connections to themselves, their communities and their goals.
Our Wellness Director conducts weekly wellness workshops tackling the 7 dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, finacial, social, spiritual, and environmental.
Wrap-around support is achieved by bringing all student supports into the experience including the participants' at-home talk therapist, parents, instructors, and Wellness Director are all involved in the care of every student enrolled.
