Beanstalk Bridges was founded in 2020 with a mission to provide high quality play installations, designed with reverence and respect for the natural environments they exist in. These builds aim to engage not only youth in the communities they are built for, but also to support the youth participants of TAASC, the organization to which all of Beanstalk Bridges' profit and proceeds go.
The American Adventure Service Corps - TAASC - is an outdoor experiential education program based in Morganton, Asheville, Brevard and Davidson, NC. Its mission as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit is to guide the growth of tomorrow's leaders through teaching both technical hard skills and soft skills.
TAASC supports students ages 6-18 and, unlike many outdoor programs, aims to retain them through high school graduation. For over two decades, TAASC has provided year-round programming which includes activities such as technical rock climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, caving and white water kayaking and canoeing.
Trial and persistence lie at the heart of the growth experience for students in TAASC. Those who are able to develop leadership skills and expand their boundaries through challenge and persistence will participate in summer expeditions planned annually. Past trips have included backpacking in the Eastern Sierra, Wind River Range, and Tetons, as well as long canoeing expeditions in the Canadian Yukon and Northwest Territories.

Bridges' sister company Beanstalk Builders, founded in 2005, shares our same mission, ethos and building practices, but focuses on designs of a larger scale such as commercial adventure parks. They design and build projects all over the United States.
