Foundations Students Embark on a Whitewater Rafting Trip
Foundations Asheville, a transition program for young adults, recently partook in whitewater rafting as a summer outing for students. Students traveled down the French Broad River full of excitement, as many of them have never been rafting before. Foundations provides experiences for students to push them out of their comfort zones in a supportive, challenge-by-choice environment.
The whitewater rafting trip was met with some hesitation and uncertainty before embarking. This provided a great learning opportunity for students who are working on anxiety and self-esteem issues. Once the crew got on the water, students and staff enjoyed the excitement and adventure. As a team, they navigated the boat in a variety of current conditions, all with giant smiles on their faces while responding to the commands and prompts of the raft guide.
Whitewater rafting and the other summer adventures in which Foundations students participate provide in-the-moment practice of their therapeutic skills. Students get a chance to identify their emotions, self-regulate, and be resilient. Foundations teaches students how to meet their personal goals and overcome obstacles out in the world. The Foundations Asheville team is committed to helping young people launch into adulthood with the skills they need to be successful.
