taking youth outside the box to expand their vision
We provide activities that expose the kids to a different way of life. They engage in activities like canoeing, archery, airplane rides, horseback riding, and other things that will show them another side of a life they may not be used to prior to being involved in the program.
Expanding Youth's Access To Opportunities
Young adults who had mentors, particularly those at-risk, are more likely to report engaging in productive and beneficial activities than youth without a mentor. These activities translate into the higher self-esteem and self-confidence that are necessary traits for youth to engage in teamwork and community work, and to be successful in life.
