Support I’m Hooked, Inc. & Invest in Youth
Our goal is to attract partners who believe in the I’m Hooked, Inc. mission and vision, share the DREAM (Drive, Responsibility, Education, Action, Mentoring), and wish to help MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Investing in youth enhances young people’s understanding of how to be accountable and inspiring leaders, and ensures that the future generation is equipped with competencies necessary for strong leadership.
Environment-based education produces student gains in social studies, science, language arts, and math; improves standardized test scores and grade-point averages; and develops skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, and decision-making. Richard Louv (2013) “Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder” p.162, Atlantic Books Ltd.
I’m Hooked, Inc. seeks to connect the youth it serves with the amazing exposure and opportunities in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. It doesn’t take long before participants and their families are hooked on the enlightening and fun experiences they have while enjoying the great outdoors.
