Our mission is to empower and educate our most vulnerable children. Scottie’s Place blends educational programs with wilderness adventure and mentoring relationships. The overarching objective is to help children and youth develop the abilities that will lead them out of their vulnerable circumstances and onto a path of productivity and positive impact; that will assist them in breaking the generational chain of poverty and becoming a resource within their communities.
