“There’s a real collaborative effort to TAASC. There’s always someone to bring up. The minute you learn a new skill, you’re turning and helping someone else.”
-Linda Schilling TAASC parent
TAASC students get the opportunity to work with other students as mentors and leaders. They teach skills and pass on the knowledge they have. The younger students really look up to these older students and as we all know, kids will listen and be influenced by other kids. In this case this is a super positive mentor and great role-model for the younger students to follow and emulate.
Our students are learning how to become outdoor instructors. We teach students that are ready how to facilitate groups, identity goals and roles and overall create high functioning expedition teams.
How cool is it to have students leading students! This is just another layer of the deep experience available to kids at TAASC.
