Wilderness Awareness Community School

What a great way to teach young people about themselves and the world around them. This group gets my vote as a a great example of good mentoring and youth development.

"The Mission of the Wilderness Awareness Community School is to create an educational environment that helps teen-agers engage their natural intelligence and awakens their innate abilities to perceive and connect with the world around them. Our students immerse themselves in intensive, experiential studies of nature from both scientific and indigenous perspectives. In this effort, our students are instructed and supported by a large, diverse community of mentors from all ages and walks of life."
