Big City Mountaineers

Non-Profit Partner

Big City Mountaineers provides transformative experiences through connections to nature that strengthen life skills and build community for youth from disinvested communities.
At BCM, they strongly believe that the outdoors isn’t just a place to go - it's a place to grow. They work to make the outdoors more accessible for youth who face barriers of access, with the aim to inspire a generation of young people to embrace their self potential and take care of their well-being, their communities and the natural world.
While opportunities for outdoor recreation abound in the United States, systemic inequities in our society have created barriers to outdoor access for historically disinvested communities. BCM works to break down such barriers for these youth, with the aim to cultivate a generation that takes care of their well-being, of the nature around them, and of their communities.

Why We Work Together

We know that time outside results in higher well-being, a sense of belonging in the world and society around us, and a strengthening of life skills.
