WHAT IS DIRECTION THROUGH SOLITUDE?
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Boise, ID, who focuses on improving and changing the lives of teens through mentorship within fly fishing, bikepacking and backpacking. Through spending time in solitude, we empower teens to live fulfilling and intentional lives, and to become leaders of their generation. We focus on teaching skills relating to character development, self discovery, and leadership. We accomplish our mission through mentorship and education of our core values; direction through solitude, lead by following, lead yourself, and leadership of others. We believe that teens can find direction in their lives through this mentorship, and the exploration of WILD places.
During the "age of information", we believe it is imperative now more than ever, to separate teens from their technology to spend time outdoors and think clearly. We believe this connection to nature will create a lifelong love for the wilderness and offer a healthy outlet for teens to find direction in their lives. We have hopes that this lifelong love for the outdoors will establish "Direction through Solitude" in the lives of teens. The teens who participate in our program range from ages 12 - 18 years old.
Mission Statement: To establish direction and purpose in the lives of teens through spending time in solitude.
Vision Statement: To empower teens to become the leaders for tomorrow. Through fly fishing and outdoor adventure, we strive to develop the skills necessary for teens to live an intentional and fulfilling life.
