Through a three-phased educational program, we challenge middle and high school youth and their educators to live a No Barriers Life.  Much more than just cool trips, our programs provide a comprehensive approach to interdisciplinary experiential education through three phases: Thoughtful Preparation, Transformative Expeditions, and Meaningful Action. To learn more about the three phases, click on the buttons below.

The No Barriers Life Elements are the common thread through every No Barriers experience.  On our expeditions, they are woven into the experience through custom No Barriers Life curriculum lessons during phase 1, themes and guided facilitation during phase 2, and the integration of the No Barriers Pledge during phase 3.

Two Ways to Participate:

  • Register as a Group
    As an educator or youth group leader, you can organize an expedition program for a group of youth that you bring together. In exchange for your coordination of the program for your group, your travel is free of charge. Groups typically must meet a minimum of at least 10 youth. Claim your dates, request custom information, or simply express interest through this simple interest form.
