Why I'm Running and Fundraising
I love the outdoors. I also love technology. I also love building a better future for America's youth. It's no wonder for the past two years I've donated my time, money, and energy to Sierra Club's Inner City Outings program and their partner agency, CampInteractive.
To quote their mission, CampInteractive is a fantastic nonprofit organization that empowers inner-city youth through the inspiration of the outdoors and the creative power of technology.
I strongly believe that when urban teenagers step back into nature and forward into technology they gain invaluable skills, heighten their academic standing, and begin to realize more of life's possibilities.
In volunteering with CampInteractive I've seen it with my own eyes and I'm happy to share these stories with you. Just ask!
A message from CampInteractive
Through a unique year-round program, CampInteractive introduces the creative power of technology and the inspiration of the outdoors to underprivileged inner-city youth. Our vision is to use positive experiences to broaden horizons and empower young people to believe in themselves and their futures!
Using both technology and the environment as educational tools, CampInteractive addresses two problems that an underfunded American public educational system faces: providing kids with technological skills for the 21st century, and instilling a sense of community where teamwork and self-confidence can flourish.
Your support will help us continue to develop and create programs that inspire kids to reach for their full potential.
