The Valhalla Wilderness Program: A Model for Alternative Education and Its Effect on Girls' Self-Esteem, is a two credit project designed to measure the impact the program had on self-esteem in females aged 14 to 15 years of age, at WE Graham School in Slocan British Columbia during the 2000 - 2001 school year. The rationale for this study is to explain how the girls in the program, view themselves and their sense of self-efficacy before and after the grade 9 program at WE Graham SchooL This will be accomplished by examining pre and post data using standardized, norm referenced self-esteem inventories as well as a Focus Group Interview. Administration of the pre and post assessment tools will take place in December 2000 and the postassessment will take place six months later in June 2001. The standardized assessment tools are the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory and the Student Self Concept Scale. The Focus Group Interview will consist of six questions about the Wilderness Program and how it affects the way the girls view themselves and their abilities over the course of six months in the program.
