What our friends and alumni are saying
What I find incredible to is how much I realize even today how I have benefited from my experience in this program three decades ago!
It’s been almost 30 years, but the lessons I learned on Les Voyageurs are still with me today. If you support Fred and his work with LVI, donate today and make a difference that will last a lifetime.
I couldn’t explain even if I wanted to what this program has done for me in my life. All I can do is give as heartfelt of a thank you as I can and hope that many more people will have the chance to participate in this amazing opportunity.
Two of the best summers of my life. A special thanks to all those keeping the LVI dream alive for future generations.
Les Voyageurs was absolutely instrumental in helping me get to where I am today. It taught me lessons about teamwork and responsibility that I never could have learned on my own. It taught me to push beyond other people’s expectations of me and my expectations of myself.
The 28 days that I spent in Canada are some of the best in my life. I learned the value in what can be accomplished when people are looking out for others first, and themselves second. There is no other experience like Les Voyageurs.
Although my trip has ended, I use the skills and lessons I learned during those 28 days daily. LVI gave me the confidence in myself to push past my limits and succeed in anything I set my mind to. LVI also taught me an important lesson to take care of everyone else first,
Les Voyageurs has been instrumental in helping my son become a hard working, focused, compassionate young man! I hope many more young people can have the same experience!
Even 10 years later, I still think back to those days on the trail and remember the lessons I learned. It was a life-changing experience, one I hope my children will be able to have as well. Thank you, LVI for all you have done for me and for Minnesota’s youth!
Thank you for providing me with such an amazing opportunity and experience! The past three summers have been the best times of my life. I have learned and gained so much from the program that I will always carry with me.
The most incredible experience of my daughters life thus far. It has made her the confident young lady she is today.
Thanks for what very well could be the best youth outdoor program in the United States!
LVI changed my life for the better. I never knew how much better of a person I could be. Such an amazing program! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
