physically in some of nature’s most incredible wilderness settings. We create a safe space and encourage them to reflect on their past, recognize where they are in the present and then look with positivity to the future. We do this in a spirit of camaraderie; where veterans come together to encourage and inspire one another. The No Barriers experience serves as both an opportunity for growth and a catalyst for change as the participating veterans stretch their boundaries, innovate through adversity, and step up to serve others. These life changing experiences are offered at no cost to the veterans and include airfare, meals, gear, and an experienced expedition crew. Importantly, each expedition is a 3-phase journey that includes preparation for the expedition, 6+ month post-expedition support and integration into the broader No Barriers community.
