Hello everyone!  I would like to pass along a program that I am launching that may be of interest to you.  Please check out The 7th Generation School at

I spent many years as a teacher working with at-risk youth as well as those diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders.  I have also recently been a wilderness guide/substance abuse counselor for a wilderness treatment center for young adults.  For many years I have been formulating this program out of my constant question, "What can I do?"  This program is my answer and humble offering to the planet. 

The 7th Generation School is a supplementary program (to a regular or homeschool curriculum) that not only connects youth with the natural world around them but also with the natural world that exists within them.  It is a therapeutic wilderness program (and more) for youth who need something more than what the schools offer.  Our intention is to provide a holistic and eco-centered supplement to our youth so that they may become their vision and purpose in the world.

I hope we get to connect soon!
