Create your own Wilderness Expedition Program

FLYY helps build and develop customized wilderness programs for Native American tribes and organizations — a brand new program or one that could help existing alternative treatment services. Large-scale projects such as these can be successful in enhancing efforts to address crime, public safety, and family systems issues, as well as creating a valuable and culturally relevant intervention for those at risk of substance abuse and criminal activity.

FLYY has the requisite level of skills and expertise to provide technical assistance, mentorship, and on-going support for: project design and systems development, all expedition elements, post-expedition paperwork, and community-based aftercare services. Most of all, FLYY is committed to ensuring projects are tailored to community needs and sustainable.

FLYY’s Wilderness Program Development services begin with a needs assessment to determine how your group’s ambitions can be realized. Once your current resources and strategic goals are known, FLYY develops the work scope and can begin the process of assisting you all the way from the development stages to implementing your first pilot expedition.
