Each expedition consists of three phases and contains the core concepts of the No Barriers Life, making a meaningful pledge, and a focus on the past, present, and future.
Phase I: THOROUGH PREPARATION
We do this through a series of interactions with the participants via phone, e-mail, a mailed welcome packet, and team conference calls. At the end of this phase, each participant has a clear, realistic understanding of the experience (itinerary, logistics, leaders, etc.), is familiar with the No Barriers Life, and is prepared for growth.
Phase II: TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE
At the end of the phase, participants have experienced the No Barriers Life, have tools to live a No Barriers Life, and are better prepared to thrive in their communities – focused on the future.
Phase III: MEANINGFUL ENGAGEMENT
The purpose of this phase is to empower alumni to live a No Barriers Life. We do this by refining the pledge our alumni set during their experience; creating and executing a plan of action; working with the veteran to ensure completion of their pledge; and ensure they remain an active member of the No Barriers Community. At the end of this phase alumni have achieved their pledge, have received required support to live a No Barriers Life, and are a member of the No Barriers Community.
