BENEFITING: La Clinica De La Raza
I am a community Health educator with a community based clinic in Oakland CA. We have a wonderful opportunity to take 10 youth, 5 young women and 5 young men on, on separate trips 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 $1800, 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 10 youth from Oakland CA, please help us to make this trip a reality.
