TAASC is a year-round program dedicated to inspiring young people to become compassionate leaders, stewards of the environment and responsible community members.
We believe every young person has the potential to become a compassionate and transformational leader in their community. Through adventure education, service learning and quality instruction we aim to develop qualities connected to a strong sense of self and an adventurous spirit.
Students’ minds and bodies are both challenged and developed as they push themselves one mile further hiking, a hand hold higher climbing, and a stronger paddle forward down the river. These activities and the social cooperation required for their success, develop qualities of trust, confidence, discipline, compassion, self-awareness, personal responsibility and initiative. All too often, such qualities are not learned in conventional classrooms and schools.
The development of a positive service ethic is a major objective of TAASC. Our students engage in creative service projects, fostering a sense of purpose and ownership for community needs and services. Through serving a diverse demographic base and partnering with other community organizations for our services, students’ understanding of diversity is deepened and the potential and strength of community infrastructure is heightened.
