“I had become stuck, and now that I’m taking part in Anake Outdoor School, so much gunk has been removed.”– Sam, a 2019 Anake Outdoor School Student
We talk with many folks who turn to Anake Outdoor School for a big transformation in life. These are individuals who are prepared to bravely show up for themselves on Day 1 of class in the fall, and graduate in the spring with new resilience to lead an empowered life.
But, there are often obstacles in the way.
Are you someone who wants to embark on the Anake journey but are facing an obstacle? Let’s take a look at some common barriers.
We know that program tuition isn’t easy for everyone. We also know that determination and creativity are powerful tools. So, what can you do?
Request a scholarship when applying for the program. Wilderness Awareness School offers scholarships that range from $500 to $3,000. These scholarships are made possible by our supportive donors. They believe in the power that Anake Outdoor School brings to students and the future of nature connection.
You can also make use of our payment plan options. Many students pay their tuition in quarterly or monthly installments, allowing them to work part-time while partaking in the program.
We know that picking up your life and moving to the great Northwest isn’t easy for everyone. But, have you seen how majestic our forests are? That being said, we have to admit that the cost of living in the greater Seattle area is higher than what we’d like to see.
Many of our Anake students decide to find room and board in shared housing amongst each other, creating even closer bonds with their classmates. We also have a supportive community of elders and alumni who often have rooms for rent. Additionally, we see other students get creative, stepping into “van life” or cozying into a nearby yurt or tiny house.
Is it difficult to imagine leaving your job or moving away from your family? We get it.
Taking a career break doesn’t have to be a bad thing. In fact, graduates of Anake Outdoor School have improved communication skills, more balanced emotions, and find themselves to be better centered under stress. These are all highly desirable qualifications to a future employer. Click here to see the variety of careers that our alumni find themselves in after graduating.
Additionally, we know that being away from family can be hard, and sometimes a postcard just isn’t enough. There are several long breaks throughout the program where students can travel back to visit family and show off their newfound skills.
So, don’t settle for stuck. Show up for yourself and get ready to shake that gunk loose! Are you ready to look beyond the limitations and learn what Anake can do for you? Click here to learn more, or email our Outreach Coordinator at email@example.com to schedule a call today!
