BENEFITING: Outdoor Outreach
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
More info: "Outdoor Outreach is ready to provide outdoor programming this summer for 500 at-risk teens and part-time instructor jobs for 12 program graduates. But we can’t do it without your support. From the end of June to mid-September, many San Diego teens are in a vulnerable position. Out of school and with parents that are often busy with multiple jobs, they are more likely to be recruited by gangs, get involved with substance abuse, and engage in other activities that threaten their own health and the well-being of their communities. Please help us raise $50,000 by June 30 to inspire and provide valuable opportunities for our most vulnerable youth. Thanks to a generous challenge grant, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000.
-Your donation of $100 will be doubled to provide one San Diego teen with three local outings to build confidence and learn to take on healthy challenges through new activities like surfing, kayaking and mountain biking.
-Your donation of $250 will be doubled to support one teen with a transformative 5-day backpacking trip to the Eastern Sierras where they will have opportunities to discover personal strengths and connect to supportive peers.
-Your generous donation of $2,100 will be doubled to provide a 10-week summer job to one of our new instructors, like Miguel, Brandon, Sameer or Gaby. These inspiring young adults will be empowered as leaders and positive role models to give back to their communities by supporting the teens most in need."
