Students at Foundations Asheville, a young adult transition program, spent the week in the Outer Banks in North Carolina on an experiential excursion. Students enjoyed the week participating in activities that were completely new to some of them such as surfing and paddleboarding. They also explored the historic locations around the Outer Banks like the Currituck Beach Lighthouse.
“Experiential excursions give our students the opportunity to practice planning and executing a trip,” said Adam Ray, Director of Programming at Foundations. “Giving students the responsibility of planning the trip holds them accountable and also provides them with an opportunity to learn how to do new things.”
The excursions also serve as a great opportunity for students to build relationships and bond as an internal community. Students connected through various parts of the trip, including preparing local seafood meals together at the beach house to enjoy.
