The Attainment Project was founded as a beacon of light to young adults who have endured childhood trauma, using the great outdoors as a healthy outlet backed with entertaining activities and experienced professionals.
Participation in sports, according to Forbes, “can help mitigate the damage caused by childhood trauma.” Team sports, as well as individual ones, are engaging the victims of abuse in an environment of healthy competition, but at the same time, bonds are being made and friendships earned.
According to RAINN.org, the organization that operates the nation’s sexual assault hotline, every 68 seconds an American is sexually assaulted and every 9 minutes that victim is a child. Furthermore, a report of child abuse is made every ten seconds, and over the past several years, state agencies have uncovered more than 702,000 victims of maltreatment.
The organization states that its long-term goal is “to raise $1 million by 2025 to help introduce survivors to outdoor adventure sports.” Raising a million dollars, even without the tremendous upkeep of the engaged staff and other expenses, is a daring venture, so the brand calls on for all willing individuals and brands to help however they can by donating.
“The Attainment Club Is an exclusive group of monthly donors committed to helping survivors find a healthy way to cope. With members from all over the world, we are on a mission to introduce survivors of abuse to outdoor adventure sports.”
The Attainment Project provides training and support to abuse survivors through outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and kayaking.
