taking hands-on education and the arts to the streets
We believe that Environment Based Education should be a way of life and that hands-on learning through adventure, rich living books, and a love for the arts is quickly becoming extinct.
Recent studies show that by integrating an outdoor inquiry-based education model into all forms of learning, we can help our children develop critical thinking skills, become better problem solvers, learn “deep” content knowledge, gain an appreciation for their surroundings, establish life skills, develop a love of learning, foster passion based futures in the workforce, and become more environmentally literate citizens.
Knowing that more is CAUGHT than TAUGHT, we model this as adults and parents and influencers. If we are passionate, that spark has the ability to ignite a wildfire in our future...our children!!
This has become the anthem for Outsiders. An educational outdoor community that exists to foster a love of learning and an environment where children are free to learn through adventure and hands-on experience. To come alongside and encourage children (our future), parents, and guardians, knowing that we are all in this together.
THIS is Community.
A place where a feast is laid before our children, where the world is made accessible to them and they are put in the way of a variety of things and of passionate individuals willing to share because we know that there are no cookie cutter learners.
Where our children are encouraged and inspired to do hard things. To figure out and establish what makes them tick, what their passions and interests are, and then inspire them to pursue those very things with every fiber.
A banner of hope for our children.
Not only to read about it, but to touch it, photograph it, dissect it, paint it, act it out, examine it, test it....experience it, and by doing so, grow in our children and in US a hunger for more.
Because we believe every child deserves this lifestyle of education, we have rallied to mobilize Outsiders in an effort to bring this unique and innovative approach to education to our own streets as well as to our local Juvenile Hall and Crossroads Detention Center.
