Urban Outdoor Initiatives
Urban Outdoor Initiatives' mission is to provide charitable support, scholarships and/or programmatic resources in disadvantaged (i.e., low-income, high-poverty) communities, to engage individuals, especially people of color, in outdoor recreation activities such as camping, hiking, fishing, etc. with an emphasis on environmental/nature awareness.
We aim to empower neighborhoods through raising interest among, while increasing the profile of minorities engaging in such activities, leading to the cultivation of new environmental stewards, "green" employees and more executive level board members of "green" foundations and organizations. Urban Outdoor Initiatives works with youth, adults, parents, elders and organizations.
The Urban Outdoor Initiatives program is sponsored by United Charitable Programs, a 501(c)(3) charity.
As the world becomes a majority minority population, charitable programs, like Urban Outdoor Initiatives, are necessary for the sustainability of our environment.
