What We Do

Mission: Go Beyond provides year-round outdoor experiences, featuring life-changing Mountain West Adventures.

Vision: Go Beyond's extraordinary outdoor adventures bring diverse groups of young people together to facilitate self-discovery and build community.

Focusing on trauma-impacted youth, our core program brings 13-15 year old's together from across our communities through year-round outings, building from our world-class mountain expeditions each summer. Our campers can continue their personal and job-skills growth through our Natural Leaders junior counselor program, ages 16-21, and many earn their first job as a paid member of our leadership teams

Our agency partnerships actively provide these Go Beyond opportunities to under-served groups from across our community, folks who would otherwise never have access.

We provide 366 hours/year together including local rock-climbing, hikes, science trips, and the mountain expedition of a lifetime. We create access to the outdoors and new trajectories with trauma-impacted youth - a new understanding of ourselves and diverse others growing from a wholly new peer group, none of our campers know each other prior to Go Beyond.

Interesting Info

"I love Go Beyond because of all the helpful people that are in this community, and you get to meet a lot of new people. This is something I never thought I would be able to do. You get to go rock-climbing and a bunch of other fun stuff. So I really encourage you to try it if you want to step out of your comfort zone" - Ethan, Natural Leader
