Hi Friends, my team is partnering with Big City Mountaineers (BCM) to introduce under-served urban youth to outdoor wilderness experiences. Exploring and recreating in the outdoors is a huge part of who I am. It's how I find peace, relax, blow off steam, stay balanced and connect to the natural world.
I was fortunate to have exposure to outdoor recreation growing up. Unfortunately, many under-resourced urban kids haven't been given the same opportunity.
That's why we are partnering with BCM in raising funds to transform the lives of under-served youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills.
Please consider joining me in donating to this noble cause.
I agree with BCM that wilderness mentoring expeditions instill critical life skills. BCM partners with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential. Their curriculum improves integrity, self- esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually. BCM has a proven track record of improving young peoples’ lives with:
• Increased likeliness to stay in school
• Reduction in violence
• Reduction in drug use
Thanks for your consideration!
