THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO! This is exactly what this boy needed — he came home a different kid. More grown up. More prepared to head into adulthood forward facing. Love it. Wish I could go to work for The SCA as an evangelist / recruiter - because I’ve seen the power of the program first hand. It’s — man — if only every kid could have these opportunities!! Thank you!!

My SCA experience has greatly increased my self-confidence and has encouraged me to follow my goals. Being out in the wilderness and connected with nature allowed me to access my inner self in a way that other ways could not.

This SCA experience has given me a lot more confidence in myself and my ability to solve problems and persevere through diﬃculties. It has also made me a lot more comfortable living and working with a large group of people - I feel significantly stronger in terms of “people skills” than I did before the program. It has also given me a sense of competence in the skill sets I have acquired, and I want to continue honing these skills which I believe have applications not just in future careers, but in my own personal life, too.

My SCA experience has made me become more social and mature. I am able to communicate with others with no problem and I have no problem trying new things.

My experience with SCA has become a foundational experience in my life that will be the cornerstone of the direction I take from here. It has directly inﬂuenced my decision to pursue a Master’s degree and the content of that degree. It is a stepping stone towards a career in large landscape conservation.
