Alternative Youth Adventures is dedicated to the service of adjudicated youth referred to our program by the juvenile court system. AYA provides our students with an intensive eight-week primitive backcountry experience focused on life skills, anger management, impulse control, community service and experiential education. We operate year round in Colorado offering full-time employment.
Location: We are located in southwestern Colorado just north of the San Juan Mountains. Our winter field operations are located on public lands in high desert terrain. In the summer months, we travel through more alpine conditions.
