Target demographics: at-risk youth ages 10-17

Direct beneficiaries per year: 850 youth.

Geographic areas served: the Corpus Christi area

Programs: Adventure Challenge Program, Summer Leadership Camps, and Ropes Challenge Courses that teach the basic life skills through fun and engaging outdoor activities.

Mission:
Our mission is to provide at-risk youth, ages 10-17, with positive youth development through adventure programming.

How:
We accomplish this through teaching basic, yet vital life skills (communication, teamwork, problem-solving, goal-setting, leadership, and trust) through adventure challenges that include teambuilding games, ropes challenge courses, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, rock climbing, bouldering, backpacking, and camping.

Why:
Our programs provide personal and teambuilding experiences for youth whose survival, self-sufficiency, and productive connection to the community depend on these skills. At-risk youth learn skills on our adventures that could mean the difference between going to jail or going to college. It could mean the difference between committing a crime and reaching out for help. Our goal is to assist youth in successfully navigating through their lives into a brighter future by overcoming their present circumstances.
