The Mountaineer Institute for Self Reliance's purpose is to provide quality training to empower our students.  This is accomplished by enabling students to become more self-reliant.  We accomplish this through instruction in our philosophy of "Prepare, Survive, Thrive."  Students prepare by making common sense preparations for likely, real-world disasters, being financially free and through education.  Students learn the basic and advanced skills to get them through an emergency or disaster; they learn to survive.  Finally, students are instructed on sustainability.  Thiving is living as self-reliant as possible; to know that you can make it for the long haul.  Thriving is a lifestyle...  Join us as we make the self-reliant journey together.

Prepare, Survive, Thrive
