Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. They partner 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 and reduction in drug use. We are proud to partner with Big City Mountaineers to make the outdoors more accessible to everyone.
