What is Y.E.T.I.?
Our mission is simple. Connect youth to the outdoors.

Using outdoor adventure experiences, we teach essential life skills, promote self confidence and foster a love of the outdoors. We also employ experiential learning for team building and to develop emotional/social intelligence which has proven to promote academic success back in the traditional classroom setting.

We offer open enrollment co-ed programs to youth from all social, cultural and economic backgrounds.

The first after school club was established in 2009 as an experiment. We’ve been developing and tweaking programs to best engage youth to maximize the positive impact in a short amount of time.

We strive to have all participants emerge from our programs seeing themselves as capable of tackling tough challenges that they can apply to other aspects of their lives including academic success.

The hope is to create lasting bonds between peer groups, appreciation for nature while promoting healthy relationships with their teachers and other adults.

Our programs serve grades 3rd-12th with a variety of adventure based learning programs.
