Rock Climbing Youth Programs
A youth “adventureprise” initiative, Nature Now trains student interns over the course of 10 weeks as outdoor adventure guides specializing in rock climbing while also learning important marketing and leadership skills to be young entrepreneurs.
“The interns experience a major transformation through their involvement in Nature Now. Most have never been to the local parks and before you know it they’ve climbed 30 feet up the face of a large rock wall. And the changes don’t stop there. We are seeing huge improvements in their self confidence, public speaking ability, and leadership skills too.”
Paid Internships for High School Students
In partnership with arc, an after school and experiential education provider, the Nature Now program has proven to be a huge success with our students by incorporating adventurous outdoor activities with education. This rigorous 10-week training program allows them to become skilled and equipped at leading public rock climbing trips with the help of certified adults.
Additionally, Nature Now provides valuable leadership and marketing experience for students to add to their resume. They bring to fruition their marketing strategies, showing that rock climbing not only serves as a fun activity for students but as an opportunity to channel their inner entrepreneur.
Nature Now culminates in a rock climbing trip led by the interns and uses outdoor exploration as the catalyst for positive personal change. At the end of the program, each committed participants receives a stipend.
