Democracy = A form of government that gives power to the people.

MLK

The community’s foundation is self-government. During our community meetings, we discuss a variety of topics including the school fiscal report, clubs, field trips, interests and issues. We follow Robert’s Rules of Order during our meetings. As a community the members create and vote upon the constitution and amendments of our school. It is this set of rules that govern our community. These rules define the areas in which our personal freedoms should not impose on the freedoms of the community. Students and mentors learn boundaries, respect, character, debate and consequences within this system.

Mindfulness: Getting Grounded in Wilderness Therapy

Mindfullness

Although you’ve probably heard that mindfulness is currently a therapeutic “buzz word”, it is truly a practice that has been around for thousands of years.

Nomadic Therapeutic Wilderness Programs Offer a Deep Immersion in the Healing Embrace of Nature

 

It is notSecond Nature 209 (1)-min so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. —Robert Louis Stevenson

Supporting At-Risk Students

watersteps

Not long ago “at-risk youth” could be defined as a young person exposed to a daily onslaught of gangs, drugs, and violence within a single-parent, low income demographic.  According to the organization: At Risk Youth Programs, behaviors that result in “dangerous lifestyles” are often the result of stress that kids experience.  In recent years we have seen a shift in demographics of at-risk youth.  With the stress of school, extra-curricular activities, learning differences, and ever increasing mandates to test and measure progress, our kids are being medicated and go to therapy to “normalize” outcomes.  As a result, our education system in America has created an entire population of at-risk youth from every demographic!

Kids go to school and do whatever they want?

democratic free school

"You can do anything you want at this school!" It can be appealing to kids when they're able to tell their friends that they go to a school where that can do whatever they want. A better way to phrase it would be to say that they go to a school where anything they want to do is possible. For those of you who haven't heard about democratic free schools, here are a couple key words we could be batched in...

Don’t drop your fishbowl!

Let’s play a quick game. Imagine that you’re holding a large fishbowl. Every time that someone does something to earn your trust, no matter how significant or simple, they are allowed to add a specific color marble to your bowl.

Teens with Substance Abuse Develop Self Efficacy in Wilderness Therapy

Wilderness therapy programs- Token

How many times have we seen someone we love to refuse to do something without ever trying? In our hearts, we know that if they would just give it a try, there is a good chance that they would succeed. We may think, “They lack self-esteem or self-worth”' this is partially correct, but it is missing the most important part of the equation: Self Efficacy.

How to Break the Cycle of a Repetitious Education

makario community school

Do you remember being a 5th-grader and savoring those last few weeks of summer before you start back to school? You treasure every day, skating in the street with your friends, swimming at the community pool and staying up to the last minute of your summer bedtime curfew. Then, all the sudden, summer is over and the first week of school comes with a barrage of emotions: excitement to catch up with old friends, nerves about being in a new school or with a new teacher, happiness over being in class with an attractive girl or popular boy, worried about getting stuck with the hardest teacher, and eagerness to start learning! (Okay...maybe only a few students experience that last one, I loved learning and still do!)
