At Catalyst Adventures, we are teachers, counselors, and mentors with a back ground in developmental psychology and experience in personal and social development of youth.  We believe that pulling out of your comfort zone and experiencing new places, cultures, food, and ways of life is the best environment for personal growth and expanding horizons for what is possible.  We involve our youth in intentional circles of reflection, physical challenges, and community involvement during our trips that begin to open up deeper conversations about who we are and the direction we are going.  We believe that personal growth takes place when we are challenged and provided the support to navigate those challenges.
