All Kinds of News for September 11, 2019
As Pure Life Adventure enters it sixth year of operation in Costa Rica, it has earned accreditation by the Association for Experiential Education (AEE). This exciting news culminated in a three day visit onsite in Costa Rica. The entire accrediation process took over a year and included a step by step review of every activity, procedure or every action that occurs at Pure Life like surfing to food preparation to ensure goals, safety and process. The entire Pure Life team was part of this accrediation process and put a lot of effort into this impressive achievement. Accrediation means Pure Life meets AEE's 'commitment to quality and safety, belief in professional standards, and allocation of resources toward continued excellence and improvement.'
As Pure Life Adventure enters its sixth year of operation in Costa Rica as an Adventure Therapy Program, Andrew Taylor, MBA Executive Director, shares, "What was exciting for me was to see how impressed the reviewers were with each department and the strong team we have at Pure Life. We could tell that the reviewers were really enjoying their stay and felt the energy of the program and the beautiful country of Costa Rica." By going through the accreditation process, the Pure Life Team was able to review every activity and assure that every thing they do tracks back to the mission and is compliant with the highest level of instruction and safety. AEE's certification assures Pure Life program participants, completing their therapeutic process in Costa Rica, receive the same exemplary services attained by the few programs in the states that have also acheived accreditation.
By the end of this process, the team at Pure Life is sure that they are offering a unique and impactful service to their young adult clients. Each young adult client is receiving the highest level of care as they work toward overcoming the barriers that are holding them back from a successful adulthood. The team at Pure Life is looking forward to building upon this success and the strong foundation that it has formed to grow the program in 2020 to offer more services to young people who are struggling to launch.
