Through a strategic partnership between Educo Adventure School and the JUMP! Foundation, JUMP! Canada was created to provide transformational programs tailored to youth. This partnership has allowed for impact expansion for both organizations, creating a leading force for youth transformation based in Canada.
Educo Adventure School has been operating for 50 years and is located in 100 Mile House. It is a non-profit Outdoor Adventure School that offers individuals the chance to disconnect from digital and online arenas. Educo draws forth students’ emotional, social and spiritual development, and helps students generate a greater appreciation for our fragile environment.
The JUMP! Foundation was started 11 years ago in Southeast Asia by inspired Educo students. It is an international Social Enterprise that utilizes experiential education to inspire and empower young people to engage with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We at JUMP! Canada believe experiential education is a powerful tool for helping youth engage with their local and global communities. We use experiential education to create transformation and empower others through our three streams of programming:
1. JUMP! Experiences -3 day to 5 week programs in the community at Educo Adventure Schoolor international destinations, based on adventure, service and culture.
2. JUMP! Schools -1-3 day in-school programs, based on personal development, community building, Global Citizenship and service learning.
3. JUMP! Impact-social innovation programs in marginalized communities with local partners that combines entrepreneurship training and its immediate application, supported with financial resources, mentorship, and social network.
Together we deliver programs that spark personal development, strengthen community and increase global awareness of participants. We are now looking for great people to join our team!
