We get teenagers into nature.
Wilderness Kids Alexandria provides life-enriching experiences in nature to teenagers from under-resourced families in Alexandria, Virginia.
Seven values underlie and inform the work we do. Here them described in this video and see a sample of our work in action!
Nature is Home: We get students into nature as often as possible.
Equity in our Community: We build a community where each member has ownership and responsibility.
Curiosity: We ask questions and share ideas.
Quality: We cultivate new skills and attention to detail.
Mindfulness: We take time to be quiet and to slow down.
Gratitude: We express thanks and notice how doing so may change our perspective.
Creative Expression: We sketch, paint, make music, write poetry, and more.
