Experiential educational opportunities refer to alternative therapeutic treatment in which participating struggling teens achieve therapeutic education and wellness through activities like, outdoor education, community service, active learning, and environmental education.
Unlike traditional education, experiential education rarely takes place in a classroom. Instead, teens are able to learn about the real world but experiencing the real world first hand. By participating in experiential learning in settings like, soup kitchens and the great outdoors, teens are able to truly learn and grow through experiencing life, rather than discussing it in a classroom.
The reason for experimental education’s success is the comprehensive list of staff supporting the experiential education curriculum. Experiential educators include teachers, camp counselors, corporate team builders, therapists, challenge course practitioners, environmental educators, guides, instructors, coaches, mental health professionals.
