take a hike vancouver


Our original classroom, Take a Hike Vancouver has been empowering vulnerable youth since 2000. Take a Hike Vancouver has two classrooms, one for grades 10-11 and one for grades 11-12, with each class having their own teacher, youth worker, and clinical counsellor, and the adventure-based learning specialist working between both classrooms.

Based at John Oliver Secondary School, Take a Hike Vancouver operates in partnership with School District 39 (Vancouver Board of Education).
