Duotech Services Supports Gold Star Teen AdventuresWilderness First Aid & Swift Water Rescue Adventure 201 | June 11-17, 2022 | Franklin, NC
Gold Star Teen Adventures will be holding the Wilderness First Aid Leadership Adventure. This will be a week of intense, hands-on activities that will focus on wilderness first aid, advanced land navigation, back-country skills, and leadership training. Apart from training, participants will be challenged with multiple events that will require the application of first aid skills, leadership, and teamwork. At the completion of the adventure, Gold Star Teens will earn an American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid and CPR certification and will have advanced their leadership, communication, and teamwork abilities.
Gold Star Teen Adventures was created to provide a place where youth can come together to share new experiences with others who have shared a similar journey. We are built on the pillars of healing, leadership development, and opportunity. Our organization is committed to serving and honoring the community of people who have sacrificed so much.
We believe that by bringing together youth in environments where they can have fun and develop relationships amongst team leaders and other Gold Star youth, we allow them the opportunity to interact with others who can empathize with the similar emotional trauma they’ve experienced.

We believe that each of these teens are uniquely wired given their pedigree and that adventure is likely a big part of who they are. Unfortunately, with the loss of a parent, these youth may not get the same experiences that they would have. We want them to have exceptional, memorable, and professional opportunities to learn and experience new things and challenge themselves.
The theme of leadership is central in every GSTA Adventure. Our programs are designed to develop our participants through direct instruction and experiential learning coupled with the challenges and experiences that the outdoors can provide.
