Yavapai-Apache Nation Adventure Education Program

On Tuesday, March 13, Good Karma Tuesday will benefit the Yavapai-Apache Nation Adventure Education Program. Ten percent of all sales will be donated to support the program’s efforts to address historical, intergenerational trauma through a culturally-specific, outdoor experiential education program on the reservation.

Starting this year, with the support of the U.S. Department of Education, tribal members will facilitate positive, evidence-based programming to middle school students. The structure of the program is based Project Venture, a Native-created, strength-based approach to youth development. Students will participate in four program levels: 1) classroom-based settings facilitated by trained tribal members; 2) afterschool, community-led activities, based entirely on the wisdom and experience of the Yavapai-Apache elders and tribal members; 3) day trips to culturally significant locations, accompanied by knowledgeable tribal members and various professionals, such archeologists and the National Forest Service; and 4) extended backcountry trips, led by newly-trained tribal guides paired with experienced field professionals. All levels are designed to reinforce each other: weekday sessions prepare participants for weekend events, and skills learned throughout the program year are used in extended multi-day trips such as backpacking, rafting, or rock climbing. Furthermore, over the years, high school students will start to take on mentorship roles, as elementary students are introduced into the program, and leadership roles as the programming becomes student-led.
