Preparing high school students for life.

Safe Harbor is an alternative high school whose mission is to prepare all students to strive for excellence through rigorous instruction and support to become college, career, and life ready citizens. The program team at Life Adventure Center works closely with the young adults at Safe Harbor with programs specifically designed to increase their resilience, positive coping skills, ability to engage in healthy communication, self-efficacy, and to build tolerance to stress. During the school year, we see groups from Safe Harbor on a monthly basis, both on-site at LAC and through mobile units at their facility. Our impact can be felt in and out of the classroom, with one student from Safe Harbor reporting recently that he knew the skills he learned at LAC would help him in his future employment and relationships.

“Life Adventure Center has become an integrated part into our school’s growth and goal towards individual resilience. I think the involvement of this program has been critical for some of our students in their path of healing and learning how to be accountable and problem solve.”

“Each year, our collaboration has evolved to serve the individualized and overall program needs of our young adults. The trauma-informed approach our teams have created has supported our young adults to build their individual resiliency and grow as leaders. We are thankful for the opportunity to grow together. ”

"LAC has been an excellent partnership for our bereavement camp for the past two years. The staff is dedicated to going the "extra mile" for collaboration purposes with our agency, but also for the children to have a fun and meaningful experience at camp."
