Ironwood Tree Experience connects teens with their community through experiences in nature.
Ironwood Tree Experience (ITE) empowers young people ages 12-19 through active, mindful and educational EcoPrograms that cultivate a holistic sense of community. Blending exciting back country and urban experiences creates a diverse pallet of opportunity for discovery, creativity and a lifelong portfolio of skills.
All ITE EcoProgramming provides young people with active, mindful, and educational eco-programs that integrate four Learning and Living Strands:
Youth Wellness emerges from foundational lessons and practices in fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness.
Community Action is experienced through direct activities that encourage adolescents to voice their perspectives and solutions to contemporary environmental and social needs throughout the Tucson Community.
Sustainable Practices are fostered through personal choices that have a long term effect on the health and well-being of humanity, wildlife and ecosystems.
Youth Character Development is built up from personal and cooperative challenges and achievements and enhances leadership skills that will sustain through adolescence and continue into adulthood.
