Our Innovations

Unique Nature-based Program:

Three to five hour sessions, usually outdoors.  Youth isn’t dragged to a county office by mom, for a 50-minute session under fluorescent lighting. A cool mentor/ mountain guide picks him/her up at school for an after school adventure. Our Method: The Gateway Method, Four Roots for Growing a Human: Authentic relationship. Nature. Peak Experience. Helping others. Learn More

Our View:

Humanistic. We do not help the youth to grow or change. They have to do that themselves. We provide the container, support, connection and opportunities. Self-awareness, Insights, and Vivid Experiences happen. With these, youth are then able to make better choices. We are Human Experience Specialists.

Our Delivery System:

Clinical supervision for every mentor. Each mentor sees only 2 to 3 clients. No burn out. Depth of relationship. Immediate availability for crisis.
