SEPTEMBER: Outdoor Outreach
SEPTEMBER: Outdoor OutreachAnother amazingly organized group started here in SD with some corporate money behind them but also damn, they seem good at what they do and they are doing it often. They have a staff of volunteers who take kids out from 3 different schools regularly (like every week) on hikes and surfs and climbs and then they partner with the school district and take kids from lots of other schools less frequently. Additionally they train the kids who are super into it to become leaders themselves in the org. These are obviously kids who wouldn’t otherwise get to be outdoors. I was really impressed by their wide scope and yet their succinct mission.
