Big City Mountaineers instills critical life skills in under-resourced youth through transformative wilderness mentoring experiences. We partner with community-based youth organizations that help identify youth who would benefit most from the experience. Our flagship program takes teens on a week-long backcountry expedition with a 1:1 mentor to youth ratio. The curriculum improves self-esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills, which lead to improving young people’s’ lives with:
-Increased likeliness to stay in school
-Reduction in violence
-Reduction in drug use
