… to establish a culture of One Health in Alaska through evidence-based action!
We offer experiential education and therapeutic adventure as a community based nonprofit organization in Palmer, Alaska.
Onward & Upward is an evidence-based, accredited 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization that uses experiential learning, adventure, and the outdoors to strengthen youth, families, and the community.
Our name “Onward and Upward,” represents resiliency in the face of adversity and positive, prosocial growth. In essence, we offer fun and exciting opportunities for students to engage and connect with their own strengths, their community and planet.
All of our programs include the immersion of our students into nature. The role that nature plays in our health and wellbeing is powerfully therapeutic and deeply empowering. In fact, animal health, human health, and environmental health are intrinsically intertwined and interdependent. The health of one affects the health of all.
