Uplifting at-risk youth through outdoor adventure sports is the solution we’re focusing on as we jump back into the non-profit space on this week's edition of the Talkin' Solutions Podcast.
Isaiah Adams, the founder of Anchors Outdoor Adventures, joins me for a conversation about his journey as a non-profit founder and the reasons why he felt compelled to help break the pay to play gap in outdoor adventure sports.
Anchors Outdoor Adventures offers youth in their community a safe and inclusive space to try something they might otherwise not have access to, build community, create lasting relationships and have fun!
In this episode we discuss:
👉 Outdoor Adventure Sports and how they benefit youth compared to other sports
👉 How Anchors Outdoor Adventures breaks down the pay to play barrier and grants access to sports that some at-risk youth would otherwise not be able to participate in
👉 The mental health benefits of being outdoors during a youth's development
👉 How they partner with organizations in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S to bring at-risk youth to outdoor sporting events throughout the year
👉 The research and benefits of action sports specifically in promoting positive behavior for at-risk youth
Check out Anchors Outdoor Adventures for more information and to learn how to help them in supporting at-risk youth in the great Pacific Northwest.
