As a Rustic Pathways student, you have a shared responsibility to ensure that your program is safe, fun, and meaningful. During your program, we expect that you always follow the rules below.
At Rustic Pathways, we value community. We cherish diversity and inclusivity and we actively strive to create a culture of acceptance, tolerance, and respect. We welcome all students onto our programs, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, and socioeconomic status. We believe that all stakeholders, including our students, have an obligation to create and maintain a healthy, safe environment for all on our programs.
Rustic Pathways defines bullying as repeated intentionally harmful acts perpetrated by an individual or group against someone who feels inadequately able to respond. We believe that any form, type, or level of bullying or discrimination is unacceptable and requires immediate attention. We reserve the right to dismiss any student who bullies or discriminates against others.
When a student is dismissed, no refund will be given for any unused program costs or flights. All costs associated with a student’s departure from the program will be the responsibility of the student and their family. Future participation in Rustic Pathways programs will not be permitted.
Failure to abide by the Rustic Pathways Rules and Inclusivity Statement will result in corrective action and likely result in immediate removal from your program at your family’s expense.
