The Mountain Center (TMC) is a nationally recognized and accredited 501(C)3 educational and therapeutic organization that, since 1979, has been dedicated to promoting personal discovery and social change among youth, families and groups through the use of creative learning experiences in wilderness, community and cultural environments. We provide unique opportunities for people to transform their lives through remarkable experiences and adventures.
Our Experiential Adventure and Community-Based Resiliency Model(r) incorporates elements of adventure, education and challenge to help participants break through self-limiting beliefs, discover their potential and build positive self-identity and resiliency. This unique model guides individuals to:
- Develop self-esteem, self-confidence and self-awareness
- Learn positive values
- Develop better social skills and relationships
- Facilitate positive changes in communities
The Mountain Center is successful because we focus on building strengths rather than identifying weaknesses. We are passionate about providing services for and reaching out to those in our community who are most in need. We partner with community and government agencies, Native American communities and nonprofits in order to formulate collaborative strategies that deliver positive outcomes and outreach to underserved individuals.
We promote wellness, personal discovery and social change through innovative learning experiences in wilderness, community and cultural environments.
