Take a Hike is an innovative education program that engages at risk youth through a unique combination of academics, adventure-based learning, therapy and community involvement. Now in its fourth year in the West Kootenays, we operate in partnership with School District No. 20 (Kootenay-Columbia) and accept applications from students throughout the West Kootenay region.

The team behind Take a Hike includes teachers, youth and family workers, clinical therapists, adventure-based learning specialists and volunteers. The program fosters the optimal environment for students to experience success and provides students the opportunity to graduate, rebuild relationships and develop life skills. Take a Hike students are active and contributing community volunteers, participating in many community initiatives throughout our region.
