BENEFITING: Outside Perspective Project Inc
Outside Perspectives co-founders Nicola Wood and Shannon Zich want to invite you to be a part of our community as we kick off our fundraiser! We have made a reality of our dream of creating a nonprofit outdoor program for underserviced youth. We care deeply about making the outdoors an accessible part of every child's life.
Our program will partner with youth development organizations to provide transformative outdoor experiences. Our immersive wilderness expeditions will prioritize underserved youth from urban areas and will help create focus for teens who are often looking for direction. Our organization hopes to work with city foster care agencies, juvenile justice programs, schools, and other youth development and community organizations, to help participants push the boundaries of what they are comfortable with and to find new ways to believe in themselves.
We’ve also got big plans for our future, including the development of a farm and wellness component to our courses. Exciting experiential connection to growing, harvesting, and cooking nutritious food can be an enormous tool for creating health. We believe that long-term deep health is necessary for our youth to reach their potential into adulthood.
If our mission resonates with you, we are requesting your encouragement and financial assistance in order to make this important program a reality. No amount is too small. We are grateful for your support in helping us start creating some Outside Perspectives!
PLEASE NOTE: We are planning a Donor's Overnight Camp Out on Saturday, May 14 - Sunday, May 15th at American Legion State Forest on the Farmington River in Riverton, CT. Invitations will be sent out to all donors soon. Cabins or tents will be available. We're so excited to hang out in the woods with you!
