Is your company looking for ways to give back to the community where you work?
Our corporate sponsorship activities are the perfect opportunity to get more connected to community organizations and to learn more about nonprofit organizations like Outdoor Outreach. Our volunteering opportunities connect corporate volunteers with Outdoor Outreach youth, instructors and staff in a mutually beneficial setting.
Corporate volunteer opportunities not only provide team building experience for those businesses sponsoring the trips, they also provide a day of outdoor activities for kids who would otherwise not have the opportunity to get outside. Here’s a little bit about what you can expect from a group volunteering outing with OO:
- Volunteers help our instructors facilitate activities like kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, outrigger canoe, beach games, and/or environmental stewardship activities like a beach clean up.
- Volunteers will have the opportunity to connect directly with the youth that Outdoor Outreach serve on a daily basis, and learn more about OO, a San Diego-based non-profit!
- Corporations can sponsor a trip that is fully facilitated by young adults in Outdoor Outreach’s Leadership Program, giving them one of their first opportunities to lead a trip on their own.
- In this way, while your volunteers enjoy a memorable day in the great outdoors, your team is also helping provide valuable job readiness training for Leadership participants.
See what some of our corporate volunteers have to say about their experience volunteering with us:
“Thank you for all of your support in executing a seamless Environmental All Stars event on Saturday. Everyone that I’ve spoken with had a great time and really enjoyed the opportunity to give back and then get wet with water sports. Your team was excellent.” – Morgan Justice-Black, SDG&E
“Thank you so much for the opportunity, it was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again in the future. I see a bright future for all the students who attended!”
– Ryan Dunek, prAna
Our most popular corporate volunteering opportunities are our Opening the Outdoors outings in which your sponsorship would provide an outing for up to 14 youth participants to explore San Diego’s parks, trails and beaches alongside your team members. *Pricing varies depending on the number of volunteers, more information can be found through our Group Volunteer Opportunities booklet.

Outdoor Outreach is a San Diego-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that runs programs primarily for youth ages 11-25 who may not otherwise have the opportunities to connect to their parks, beaches and open space areas. Through the outdoors, Outdoor Outreach provides youth with opportunities to build resiliency in the face of challenges and confidence in their power to make a difference.
