Outdoor Leadership programming aims to use outdoor adventure as a means for the fostering growth in our core tenets:
- Healthy Risk Taking
- Hard Skills and Technical Competence
- Community Building
- Environmental Connection
Through intentional programming, the learning that takes place by working through outdoor challenges as a group can transfer into many aspects of youth’s life at home. TEENS, Inc. Outdoor Leadership programming operates on a sliding scale to ensure that outdoor opportunities are accessible to all youth. No one is ever turned away for not being able to pay.
