Transform your classroom setting into a novel hands-on, boots on the ground, natural learning environment! During our Stewardship Experiences SM youth in grades 4-12 are able to develop a sense of belonging while learning about the natural systems which exist in their local environs through through our intentional place-based experiential education curricula and collaborative project-based learning opportunities. Whichever format you choose these SOLE Experiences SM allow learners to develop an affinity for our natural world through experiencing an educational setting where they can truly explore > achieve > lead.
To achieve specific learning goals and objectives, related to our Stewardship Experience SM program, we utilize evidence-based best practices and collaborate with land management agencies, conservation organizations, universities, and government agencies where the programs occur This purposeful design allows SOLE to facilitate novel place-based experiential education, including project-based learning programming opportunities in local outdoor settings for educators and youth leaders. Because of their design and proximity, these programs yield positive results and outcomes for all learners.
In addition to SOLE’s place-based experiential education curricula educators (and those they serve) may experience SOLE’s LEAD SM or Leave No Trace curriculum. Why? Because intentional immersion in a natural learning environment allows youth to develop a sincere sense of belonging and accountability. Coupled with SOLE’s 4 Cares SM, (at the core of all SOLE Experiences SM) educators and their students receive a positive and engaging experiential education program allowing them to address academic and non-traditional learning objectives.
