Organization Information

AIAO provides rich learning opportunities that are rooted in place and nature based educational practices. We are often learning on and from the land and work with local Indigenous groups to authentically weave Indigenous ways of being and knowing in to our program.
We collaborate with various business and mentors throughout the Okanagan to engage our students in a variety of experiential learning opportunities. We acknowledge that learning and understanding occur in many ways, not just within the classroom, and incorporate this philosophy into our way of learning.
