Take a Hike Foundation

Take a Hike is a full-time alternative education program that partners with school districts to engage at-risk youth through a unique combination of adventure-based learning, academics, therapy, and community involvement.

Take a Hike

Not every student thrives within the mainstream school system. The youth (ages 15 – 18) enrolled in the Take a Hike Program struggle with a combination of personal issues such as drug and alcohol addiction, physical and mental abuse, low self-esteem, depression, poverty and/or trauma, which inhibits their academic success. Take a Hike provides these youth with a stable and supportive environment to work through their issues, build confidence, improve their academic abilities and eventually graduate from high school, pursue higher education and become gainfully employed.

Funds raised by the Modo Spring Run-Off will be used to support the Take a Hike Program. At-risk youth are the primary beneficiaries of the program but entire communities also benefit from having engaged and contributing community members.
