About This Charity
Proving Grounds is over for another year, but with your help Enviros can continue the important work we do!
Your generosity will support the operations of Enviros. This includes critical needs of client support, staff training and development and capital improvements for our multiple facilities. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of Alberta’s most vulnerable.
Who We Are
Enviros Wilderness School Association is a diverse not-for-profit social services agency. Since 1976, Enviros has offered innovative, family-oriented programming to Alberta’s most vulnerable children, youth, adults & families.
Enviros is a community committed to enhancing the quality of family life in Alberta. We engage children, youth, adults and families in experientially based opportunities and community participation to learn and develop skills that foster resilience.
What We Do
We offer a range of therapeutic programs designed to keep families safe and strong and to help children, youth and adults with addiction, mental health and other challenges that prevent them from reaching their full potential.
Some of our residential and community programs include:
- Addiction and Mental Health
- Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
- Youth Justice Support
- Family Support/Reunification
- Developmental Issues
- Child/Youth/Adult Stabilization
Why We Are Successful
Research shows contact with the outdoors and being part of respectful, safe environments reduces stress and anxiety, improves self-confidence and self-discipline and builds a stronger sense of belonging — all of which are essential to personal growth and emotional healing.
What Sets Us Apart
Expertise – we are recognized as a leader in experiential learning and adventure therapy.
Experiential Learning – intentionally designed therapeutic activities that help clients discover their own strengths and abilities and attain their newly discovered goals.
Adventure Therapy – by going beyond the standard "talk" method, this technique uses outdoor activities to enhance our clients’ physical and psychological well-being.
Leaders – we are a well-respected leader in our sector and known for our quality service development, programs, and delivery.
Relationships – our unique approach puts the relationship between client, therapist and supportive staff at the centre of the healing process.
Why We Are Important
By getting people and families active, healthy and connected, Enviros helps people learn to advocate for themselves and find the tools they need to live independent and safe lives.
Why Support Enviros
Government funding provides for a fundamental level of care, but with support from the private sector and community donors, we can expand our services to help our communities further thrive and grow.
Thank you for supporting Enviros!
