The Young Ascenders' Impact in 2022

52 climbing sessions
278 impact hours

TYA is officially registered as a 501(c)3 in Boulder, Colorado!
And this summer we certify with the Institute of Climbing Therapy in Austria.

We use therapeutic climbing with adopted and foster youth organizations in Colorado.

A small team of trained and wonderful volunteers work with a group from Kids at Heart and Wayfinder
thanks to the partnership of Ascent Studio in Fort Collins, Colorado.

TYA mentors are qualified to handle youth with trauma, thanks to Wild&Wonderful Counseling and Climbing Therapy Institute

TYA Works with Adopted & Foster Youth
