FUND A ONE-YEAR WELLNESS PROGRAM FOR UNDER-RESOURCED YOUTH 

Just $50 a month covers the costs for one youth to attend our program.

Our Nature-Based Wellness Programs for youths living in urban areas last for at least one year, focusing on fostering mental and physical health, personal development, self-exploration, emotional regulation, team work, developing ecological consciousness, and environmental stewardship. After an immersive experience in nature, we follow up with participants one weekend each month, and each time we engage in a new activity in a new place.

Nearly all of the activities we do are a "first" for participants. For most of our participants, our program is the first time they've left the city, and the first time they climb, camp, kayak, experience a ropes course, or engage in outdoor activities of any kind. You can see a list of the activities you'll be providing below. Together, these experiences help foster a healthier developmental process for those we serve.
