WHAT PARENTS, GROUP LEADERS, AND TEACHERS ARE SAYING
-ABOUT AML'S PROGRAMS-
"AML allowed my students to practice leadership skills in an authentic environment. Successes and failures were reflected on as learning opportunities to guide future decisions. AML allowed me to step back and reflect on what the group and individuals were discovering. Students now have a unique common experience we revisit often in pictures and stories. AML aligns beautifuly with the CREW experience in Expeditionary Learning schools."
-Jenny Johansson, District Lead OCP Teacher, Lead Special Education Teacher
"Confidence. My son returned home from AML's Created for Purpose program with a high level of confidence in his own faith, leadership ability, and wilderness skills. I knew this program had made a difference when my son looked at me and said; "I got this Dad."
-Fred Grooms, Father of 'Created for Purpose' Student
"What an amazing experience!!! Thank you AML, Tom, and Leif for taking good care of our daughter and giving her this experience."
-Amy Berry, Mother of 'Created for Purpose' Student
-ENVIRONMENTS WHICH FOSTER GROWTH-
We believe that wilderness is a formative space, a classroom for learning how to lead and serve others. Wilderness offers a space to step away from the busyness and frenzy of normal life. It provides a quiet and powerful space to honestly examine values and desires. It is a place for rest and retreat, but it is also a place to find challenge that awakens the soul.
Adventure is that experience where the senses are heightened and the heart and mind are receptive and ready to be formed. It stirs a hunger for greater depths of character. Adventure is the perfect context to introduce transformational ideas. Adventure has long been, and is proven as, a resource for educators and great leaders
Community is where we, as people, have been designed to live out our lives. Our callings and passions are only fulfilled in the midst of healthy community. Our programs are designed to define and nurture a healthy understanding of genuine, life giving, community. Community is where we learn to love and value others, which is essential to the heart of a servant leader.
