Transforming Fayette County, WV through youth & family engagement
INSPIRE. EDUCATE. EMPOWER.
Empowering a generation
Coda Mountain Academy is a non profit organization dedicated to the equipping and developing of young students and their families through unique and outstanding educational opportunities. In 2018 Coda provided over 500 youth and their families with summer camps and after-school programs. These programs not only train students in their particular craft but promote invaluable life skills such as team building, integrity, positive self-image, and outstanding character. Offerings include music, Lego robotics, art, cooking, outdoor recreation, and more.
Nestled deep in Appalachian country, Coda’s home is right in the middle of the dazzling New River Gorge in Fayetteville, West Virginia. But within our wild and wonderful state lies an issue impacting people from every income and cultural background — drug and alcohol addiction. Our youth are in unprecedented crisis. The most effective drug prevention strategy is to give our youth a natural and safe place to belong, someone to believe in them, and engagement in meaningful and exciting activities. These things bring natural highs!
