Learning Through Adventure

Letter from a trainer:


This past winter and spring, retired Project Adventure (PA) Executive Director, Dick Prouty and I
collaborated on a writing project with our partners at the Cambridge Institute for Brazilian Studies (CIBS) and Dominique Bernard, a PA collaborator in France. Dominique, a man with deep expertise in positive youth development and experiential education, recently stepped back from on-the-ground international NGO work to launch the educational e-magazine, ‘Cooperative Approaches’.   


Published every two months by an international and multidisciplinary editorial team, Cooperative Approaches aims to promote dialogue, experiential learning, and cooperation in five key areas: youth education, adult education, organizational management, social action, and civic engagement. It is circulated widely and bi-monthly in 4 languages.  


The 6th edition titled ‘Learning through Adventure’, is dedicated to Project Adventure. It captures key moments in PA history, our highly inclusive methods for group development, and global reach. There are also stories and images of innovative programming within the US and globally. The closing commentary by our new executive director, Caitlin Small deftly fits all those full experiences into this present moment in time.


Read the full text in English, French, Spanish, or Italian along with journal overview and subscription information. Please take a look and dig in. Our intentions are that it sparks curiosity,
demonstrates the depth and wide adaptability of our methods, and inspires. Feel free to comment, share widely, and print if like me you can only stare so long into a screen. 

In the spirit of Adventure,

Larry  Childs, PA Senior Trainer & Consultant
