SheJumps’ Youth Initiatives are geared towards building life skills; empowering ownership and confidence through exposure to positive female role models, supportive communities and the outdoors . These programs exist to give girls and young women the opportunity to know what it’s like to have dirt under their feet, sun on their cheeks, and wind in their hair.
- Ages: 6-18
Goal/Purpose: Our Youth Initiatives ensure that our message gets to girls and young women around the country in the form of events, workshops, camps, ‘Get The Girls Out!’ events, and any other way we can find to connect the youth of today with the resources they need—from equipment to instruction to mentorship—to envision a life where adventure in the outdoors is a daily staple.

The Alpine Finishing School is our top-level, all-women’s ski mountaineering course. This program is the ultimate social and technical winter experience. One day we envision this to be the final step in a journey that perhaps started for a young woman when she ‘JUMPED IN,’ and now, she is a full-on mountain woman making decisions on her own, knowing she got there by taking many small “Jumps.” This course is run in conjunction with ACMG Guide Anne Keller and the Selkirk Backcountry Lodge.
- Ages: 18 and Older
Goal/Purpose: Provide top-level technical ski and snowboard mountaineering skills with an emphasis on team building, group dynamics, and the importance of sharing knowledge and practicing skills to keep the cycle of learning alive and prospering.
- 2014 Session: April 19-26 2014
Location: Selkirk Backcountry Lodge
