The IRC has started a partnership with Vertical Generation which provides mentors to work with our refugee students on homework as well as mentoring them in climbing! For many of our students, this is their first introduction to the world of rock climbing and they have loved it so far! The IRC and Vertical Generation are expanding their partnership to be a full school year! Students and mentors will work together on homework at the climbing gym before getting up on the rock wall. These funds will allow IRC to have two cohorts of 22 students during the school year. Help us fund this innovative new program so that we can get more students and mentors studying and climbing together!
