Outdoor Outreach is a unique nonprofit agency with a mission to connect youth to the transformative power of the outdoors. In partnership with three Title I high schools and various other youth-serving organizations, we use the outdoors to inspire youth to see possibility and opportunity in their lives, and realize the positive attitude and behavioral changes that help them become happy, healthy, and successful adults. Since 2000 we have served over 7,800 youth.
Outdoor experiences, including rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling, form the foundation of our youth development programs. All outings are organized, supervised, and directed by Outdoor Outreach staff and volunteers to provide youth with experiences that would otherwise be unattainable due to lack of resources.
Currently, Outdoor Outreach offers three ongoing youth development programs: Partner, Adventure Club, and Leadership programs.
