Review for Chicago Adventure Therapy, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I know there are a lot of good causes out there, but let me tell you why I donate to CAT. For low income city kids, there are pressures from a lot of directions – and many of them make bad decisions because they’re not aware of all the choices available to them. There are many examples on their website, but CAT removes these kids from their usual environment and puts them into adventure situations like kayaking or rock climbing, and they see the world differently – by facing a new challenge it educates them to reconsider their options in their daily lives. The “therapy” part of it helps them to process this experience so they re-frame their thinking to consider college or other avenues that enriches not only their life, but society as a whole.
