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.
As our growing population becomes more urban, many people go about their lives not having experienced the beauty and awe of the natural world. We believe that a mixture of service-learning projects, community engagement, outdoor exploration, and education helps transform city residents into engaged citizens.
The Outdoor Promise mission is to encourage urban youth and families to appreciate the natural world and hone their outdoor leadership skills to have safe and fun adventures. We are committed to increasing access to outdoor recreation and environmental stewardship opportunities. We believe that we cannot ask people to protect a nature they have not experienced. Outdoor Promise offers transformational outdoor experiences, outdoor education programs, and environmental stewardship opportunities to help create a greater appreciation of the natural world.
