Take a Hike! An alternative, outdoor oriented education program for vulnerable youth

Designed for vulnerable youth, Take a Hike! is an alternative education program that sees students spend 4 days a week in the classroom and one day out in nature.

Students also have constant access to a full time registered clinical counsellor.

There are Take a Hike programs in many BC communities, including Nanaimo, where around 30 students are enrolled. Charlene Smith, manager of philanthropy for Vancouver Island at the Take a Hike Foundation speaks about the program.
