The Youth We Reach
The youth we reach are as diverse as our Member Programs. They generally live in low-income neighborhoods and attend schools with limited resources in the metro regions of Seattle, San Francisco Bay, Los Angeles, Austin, TX and Chicago. Programs serve youth of all genders, age 5 - 25, with the average age being between 12 - 14. Most youth are given, through the support of our member programs, the chance to camp and sleep outside in nature for the first time, changing the way they see and connect with the natural world.
