  • Pivot Adventure is an adventure-based mentorship course

    There is no map. No step-by-step set of instructions to live a life of happiness. What we need is a compass. Pivot Adventure is a resiliency course that helps students develop skills to navigate life's challenges.

    Why Adventure?

    Fear will never go away. It's part of our biology. We must learn to dance with it. Adventures place students in a situation of perceived risk. It's part of the process to change their posture: "People like us do stuff like this."

    Change the narrative

    All highly resilient people have learned to change the story they're telling themselves. When we take adversity and turn it into a learning experience, our quality of life improves.
     

    Build resiliency

    This isn't counseling. It's not a punishment. It's not grownups telling you how to live your life. ​Pivot Adventure is an opportunity to be seen, to be heard, to become your best self. To be part of a community, a second family.

  • Adventure activities

    We use the outdoors to inspire students to see a world of possibility, to help them realize that telling a better story about challenges they face in the field will help them become happy, healthy and successful adults.

  • What parents are saying

  • "Josh has extensive experience working with troubled, challenged, and at-risk young people and has had remarkable success with many of those youth, helping them from dark, dangerous, or dead-end conditions to places where they take control and responsibility for themselves and their actions."

    "The young man had no interest in doing this hike, but after the hike, the boy felt proud for what he had accomplished. This was a complete change in attitude for this particular young man."

    "Excellent guides...They taught me proper techniques and gave me feedback on how to ride safely. Most of all they were patient and encouraging. My confidence and skill level increased throughout the ride so that by the end I felt comfortable navigating obstacles on my own."

    "I've had experience in the past working in youth therapy programs and understand how valuable but also expensive they can be. What Josh and Katie are doing with Pivot is awesome. They bring years of combined adventure/therapeutic experience to create a safe, professional and affordable program."
