The Importance of Outdoor Adventure: Encouraging At-Risk Youth to Experience the Outdoors
The power of the outdoors is indescribable. The life skills, larger perspective and appreciation of our natural surroundings cannot be replicated anywhere else. The majority of these important experiences can happen in our youth through the guidance of our parents. These experiences not only provide new perspectives and learnings but deep memories and irreplaceable bonds that have insurmountable lifelong affects.
For many children and youths, it is a strong reality that they will not have these formative outdoor experiences, because they do not have the family conditions or resources to enable them.
Our Friends of Adventures programs are aimed at restoring a balance so that underprivileged youth experience wholesome development as they grow.
By engaging companies and organisations through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, we facilitate numerous runs of Friends of Adventures Programs, incorporating activities that are responsive to the group’s needs.
These Friends of Adventures, funded through CSR initiatives, also offer employees in these companies to be a Friend & Mentor in engaging the youth, interact with them and offer support during the program.
“Not only are we building a more effective company team, but by doing so, are also assisting an extremely efficient method of providing humanitarian assistance to those who need it most."
