YBEC Branch Programs
YBEC provides experiential and adventure-based programming for 5 special education programs in 3 area school districts. These programs support the districts’ emotional support classrooms by providing specialized activities including rock climbing, rappelling, mountain biking, orienteering, rope courses, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, skiing, horseback riding and extended overnight camping experiences. Some experiential and community service projects are also included in the curriculum.
These challenging activities provide students an opportunity to enhance their leadership and team building skills as well as increase mental and physical endurance. These skills can translate into increased self confidence and motivation to do well in the traditional classroom.
