I participated in a great partnership in September. Myself and other youth-whitewater-guides from the non-profit Cascade Leadership Challenge went down the Tieton River with the life coaches from the Seattle area. Here is a link to a blog from one of those life coaches, Gene Gousie, helping to sum up the great conversations we were able to have on this trip: "Someday they'll run into something they've never seen before. And they'll know what to do." Hopefully this relationship with life coaches will continue to inform our philosophy and method of learning in the outdoors.
