Community, Education and Conservation
Outdoor Promise is a 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on inspiring and supporting the next generation of outdoor leaders. Our programs are centered around equitable access for youth, families, and individuals that have been traditionally underrepresented in outdoor recreation. We believe in the power of an engaged community that works together to protect the environment starting with their own backyards.
We believe that we cannot ask people to protect a nature they have not experienced.
We have partnered with the City of Newburgh and the Greater Newburgh Parks Conservancy to engage the community, develop youth leaders and improve the tree equity of the city of Newburgh, New York.
