Mr. Pollard has long been familiar with Summit Achievement and jumped at the opportunity to film the first videos. "I had known about Summit Achievement as I had and still have many friends who had worked there but filming these videos helped me to see how extraordinary this program is and how amazing the people are that work there as well as how they help troubled teens and young adults." (Mr. Pollard has filmed three Everest documentaries spanning two decades. Notably, he was a high-altitude cameraman during the discovery of the body of lost British mountaineer George Leigh Mallory at nearly 27,000 feet in 1999, 75 years after his disappearance ["Lost on Everest", PBS/BBC]).
Summit Achievement will continue to update its YouTube Channel in the future with new and inspiring stories about the program and how it works. If you like what you see, please consider subscribing to the channel. Updated video content will also be available on Summit Achievement’s webpage.
About Summit Achievement
Summit Achievement is, and always has been, guided by positive reinforcement and the power of choice. Our outcome-focused program employs effective therapeutic and educational principles. Through the process of engaging therapy, classroom academics and exciting wilderness expeditions, students experience the therapeutic benefits of outdoor adventure-based activities while learning to manage the demands of a more traditional environment. As an intentionally small, owner-operated wilderness therapy program, we serve adolescent boys and girls, ages 13-20, from around the world.
