Developing people and personal skills in the outdoors.

Safety isn't the absence of threat,
it's the presence of connection.

iElevate Outdoors is bringing neurodiverse young people outside.

Get out of fight-or-flight, aligned, and in the flow of life.

Professional skills and career development in the outdoors.

We are taking coaching outdoors.

We provide OT-based Career and Life coaching services to neurodivergent young people.


Through this journey, we have found that the life skills, relationships, and purpose our clients seek to find are things best built in the challenging, yet safe, outdoor ecosystem of our local communities.
