When Project U.S.E. started taking people into the outdoor classroom in 1970 we had little idea of the breadth and scope our programs would span decades later. As a nonprofit educational organization we provide acclaimed experiential learning opportunities to more than 2,000 young people and adults each year. Specializing in the out-of-the-ordinary, our tools and tactics support academic learning and promote self-respect, strong character and social and environmental consciousness. In their entirety our services focus on three main areas: Experiential Education, Job Readiness + Life Skills, and Professional Development. We offer adventure-based wilderness expeditions, employment skills training, curriculum-based school programs, and consulting services to educators, trainers, and managers. Our workshop locations range from natural environments to city streets to waterways to school buildings to boardrooms.
