Our Partners

Our Partner Organizations

Trails to Empowerment is an umbrella organization with our partner organizations that guide you on your transformational journey. Each of our partners have our Three Pillar philosophy of Nature Connection, Personal Development and Nature Conservation as their focus. But each partner facilitates these Three Pillars in a different way. Meet our partners below and see who you connect most deeply with to begin your wilderness journey!

The Chilcotin Ark Institute is committed to creating and managing a working landscape, and facilitating and executing research projects. Each conservation project is an opportunity to become a wilderness steward, learn new skills and deepen your connection with nature.


Chilcotin Holidays facilitates your connection with nature, stewardship of the wilderness and personal empowerment through conservation trips including horse trips, hands-on training programs, hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing and much more!


Bridge River Valley Accommodation (BRVA) facilitates your nature connection through ranch and wilderness based camping and cabin rental options. Each journey is an opportunity to learn new wilderness skills and get involved in conservation of the area you are visiting. Whether it’s your first time in the wilderness or you’re an experienced back-country user, BRVA has the style of accommodation for you.


The Wilderness Training Academy offers a wide variety of online courses that lead you through a process of self discovery from interest development to identify goals, to defining how to live life with a purpose. You’ll learn new ways to connect with nature, enhance your skills and mindset to experience personal development and learn how to become a wilderness steward.


Our Three Pillar Philosophy


Learn new skills such as horse care or management techniques and mindsets including responsibility, initiative or positvity. Identify your strengths, weaknesses, interests, goals and purpose.. These are the keys to personal development, empowerment and living a meaningful life. 



Getting out in nature, experiencing it with all your senses,  connecting deeply with the environment around you is true nature connection. Getting away from technology and into nature will recharge you and bring you closer to the wilderness.



It is our responsibility to take care of the environment we benefit from. That’s why conservation and stewardship is a priority.  We work from a holistic concept, conserving the ecosystem as a whole – from wildlife to wildflowers, rivers to mountains – to bring the greatest benefits to nature.

All three pillars are used to facilitate your ability to create positive change – for yourself, for others and for your environment. You will embark on a transformational self-development journey, discovering who you are and who you want to be. You will view circumstances from new perspectives, share experiences with our supportive community and embrace challenges to grow and evolve. Our philosophy, summarized in our Values & Principles, determines our actions. 

Our community guides you on your journey, teaching you how to reach your full potential and realize your goals. You will be challenged physically, mentally and emotionally, succeeding in ways you may not believe possible. In our community you can’t fail – You either win or learn. So stay open-minded, step out of your comfort zone and you will be rewarded by a unique experience that will transform your life.
