As a mentor on two youth trips for Big City Mountaineers, I'm helping fundraise as well. I am doing this because I believe in what they do, by giving youth in Seattle, Portland and California the opportunity to get away from the city, sometimes for the first time, into the back country where self discovery, real talk, and embodied reflection in nature can happen in a new way. It can be a lifesaver. I'm so happy to be a mentor in this program, and if folks are interested in supporting my trip, donating a few bucks is a great way!

Our volunteer adult mentors are the heart and soul of Big City Mountaineers. Did you know that every year BCM mentors not only spend one on one time with kids and teens in the outdoors, but they also raise funds through BCM’s Change a Life Campaign? Each one of our mentors has their own crowdfunding page and is actively soliciting donations to support their expeditions.
