The Adventure Group was founded to support youth to develop valuable life and work skills. With dedicated staff and a strong board of directors, they have withstood many years of dealing with sustainability. They formed critical community partnerships and developed programs that have a lasting impact on the lives of the youth participants.
“After all these years, we have some pretty awesome stories,” says Roxanne Carter-Thompson, who has worked in a variety of capacities over the past 24 years, and has been the Executive Director for 14 years. “Many past participants who are buying cars and houses didn’t think that was going to be an option for them. It’s about helping them to be the best person that they can be, and to make solid decisions as they move through their careers and life.”
