LEADS is founded on principles of supporting our future leadership (young people), honoring the men and women who have served and protected our country (veterans and their families) and breaking through the barriers that keep people from living their best and biggest lives possible (athletes with adaptive needs). It is also founded on core beliefs that we are better together (breaking isolation) and best when we spend time in nature (wilderness therapy).
LEADS humbly hopes to garner resources and distribute to these people who we believe are most deserving to participate in experiences that will lift them up, comfort them and inspire them to be bigger and better than they ever thought they might be. In this way, LEADS Is a program of support as much as it is one of transformation. It is an invitation as well as a gesture of gratitude to focus on that which we as an organization deem most valuable: Leadership, Education Adventure, Development and Service. It is in this way we hope that LEADS Serves all that come to play, heal, learn and expand!
