Connect. Empower. Lead.

Connect. Empower. Lead…Be The Example. These words define our mission at High 5 Adventure Learning Center. We help young people and adults create stronger schools and stronger communities. High 5 transforms individuals into teams, and teams into innovative problem-solvers pursuing a shared mission.

A nonprofit educational and community-building organization, High 5 has been recognized worldwide for its brand of adventure, experiential education, and leadership programs. Some of the world’s most respected schools, colleges, and organizations worldwide come to High 5 to help them use experiential social-emotional learning as a catalyst for more positive connection and communication. Our staff bring deep passion, skills, and creativity to every aspect of our work.

Now more than ever: Thank you for your continued support

There has never been a more urgent time to support classrooms and communities as they rebuild. The High 5 team has the expertise, experience, and determination to help:

  • High 5’s Edge of Leadership program is helping students and educators connect and communicate in new and positive ways, opening doors and improving school culture. 
  • Our new Rebuilding After COVID online professional development training is giving educators tools to address the ongoing damage that the pandemic has caused for students, teachers, and school communities.
  • High 5’s innovative adventure education work is providing leaders and adventure educators with the training and tools they need to provide immersive, team-building experiences.

“When High 5 comes in it enables our students to take a step forward and rebuild their confidence. High 5 creates an environment that allows them to take risks – and is teaching our staff how to do that as well. We’re rebuilding our students’ sense of safety.”

– Principal, Keene, NH School District
