2 Women. 4,000 Miles. A Source-to-Sea Expedition exploring the Source of Confidence on the 4th Longest River System in the World.

During the summer and fall of 2016 Lisa Pugh and Alyce Kuenzli will become the only all female expedition to traverse this river system. A once in a lifetime expedition. They will use their expedition to inspire and teach girls and women to discover their own source’s of confidence, using Adventure Learning. They will document their Map of Source of Confidence Adventureexperiences on the expedition and upload video, photographs, and blog posts, in real time. The expedition will serve as a platform for exploring what confidence is and how to build it. Alyce and Lisa will showcase their successes, failures, triumphs, and challenges on the rivers and the tools they use to persevere. Along with a curriculum designed to build skills in communication, problem-solving, decision making, and, of course, self-confidence. Together, Lisa and Alyce have over twenty years of experience facilitating this process and want to teach these confidence-building ideas to a larger audience of girls and women.
