THE STORY:

Hello friends, family, and business partners,

As many of you may know, I have been a mountaineer for years.  The wilderness has been a transformative experience and place for me, the area where I can truly reflect on who I am and what is important in life.  At the same time I have had many opportunities to share this with others.  Along those lines, for over ten years I have wanted to support Big City Mountaineers – their mission and approach seemed very noble.  So, after ten years of thinking about it I finally applied and was accepted last year.

For those of you that may not be familiar, a little background…Big City Mountaineers (http://www.bigcitymountaineers.org/) transforms the lives of under‐served urban youth (83% traditionally below the poverty line, and 63% have never been out of their county line) through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills.  We partner with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential.  Our curriculum improves integrity, self‐ esteem, responsibility, decision‐making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually. BCM has a proven track record of improving young peoples’ lives with:

  • Increased likeliness to stay in school
  • Reduction in violence
  • Reduction in drug use

And they do this with only six full time employees…the rest are all volunteers like myself, so your contributions go far in benefitting as many youth as possible.

The agency my expedition is teamed with is the Canal Welcome Center (http://www.cwcenter.org/). Based out of the North Bay, this agency helps support under‐resourced families in that part of the Bay Area, primarily a small, lower‐income area called the Canal.  However, they also serve youth from neighboring cities.

On my eight-day expedition last year I saw dramatic change in six youth.  It was also a transformative and growing experience for myself.  BCM has asked me to again volunteer this year for an expedition with Canal.  I have accepted, am looking forward to supporting more youth this summer, and am now also looking for your support.

If you have the capability, please consider supporting these much needed youth with a financial contribution.  Your generosity will go directly toward the organization’s mission of growing young individuals.

Thank you, Scott
