We have already sent the group of young ladies out and back now its time for the boys.
I am a Health educator in Oakland CA. We have a wonderful opportunity to take 5 young men to Yosemite this summer. we have teamed up with Big City Mountaineers (http://www.bigcitymountaineers.org/) who provides all of the training, equipment, food, and volunteers to guide the trip. In order to participate on these trips my group of peer health educators has to come up with $925, this will cover the cost of transportation to Yosemite form Oakland and Back (the van rentals and gas).
the trip is a 7 day back country trip with 5 days out in the back country of Yosemite. The youth that participate in our program are inner city youth that would really benefit from this experience. in the past youth that have participated have returned home with a great appreciation for life, for their abilities to be positive contributors to society, some have changed their life 180 degrees and dropping the negative things they were involved in. this is a life changing opportunity for 5 young boys from Oakland CA, please help us to make this trip a reality.
