Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Childhood mental health is too often ignored and children seldom have access to needed support, due to limitations regarding resources, associated stigma, and other barriers to access.

Mindful Outdoor Adventures

Children are welcomed to attend free mindfulness adventures in the Lake Tahoe Basin, guided by professional guides, including rock climbing, mindfulness hikes and snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, standup paddle boarding, and outdoor yoga. All adventures are complimented by mindfulness-based coping skills training.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to enhance quality of life for children experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression, destigmatize mental health and disseminate knowledge regarding effective, evidence-based approaches for addressing anxiety and depression.

We aim encourage an open dialogue about mental health by engaging children in fun, inspiring, and courageous activities. Engaging in these activities challenges child, family and societal expectations of the capabilities of children experiencing mental health concerns, but also encourages children and families to more openly discuss these struggles, allowing opportunities for greater connection, support, and acceptance.

The Courage Project's Founder and Directors have extensive knowledge and expertise in mental health. We are firmly grounded in the evidence-base. Our knowledge and philosophy is applied thoughtfully throughout every aspect of our organizational activities, from the training of our staff to the selection of our outdoor activities and choice of supporting, allied organizations and professionals.

To date, as of Fall 2018, in our inaugural season we have held 9 events, have provided free access to high-quality professionally-led adventures to nearly 50 children, and have established an all volunteer staff of managers, coaches and athlete ambassadors. In 3 months time, we have received nearly $10,000 in donated goods, services, and volunteer efforts, as well as the generations donations of our community to support our efforts. We are firmly committed to keeping all of our events free and seek to secure additional funding sources to promote sustainable programming. We also seek to expand our offerings, reach, and quality of our programming in the coming years.
