How To Support
Through expert coaching, mentorship, and outdoor education, YWWC provides New York City public high school students with unparalleled opportunities to develop themselves not just as athletes and climbers, but as the next generation of community and outdoor leaders.
YWWC partners with The Cliffs at LIC and CatRock Ventures, an indoor climbing gym in Long Island City, to offer free climbing instruction to our mentees – along with Wilderness First Aid certification courses, Leave No Trace education, and more. In addition to the 9 months of indoor climbing instruction, we take our climbers on outdoor climbing trips and overnights including to the Shawangunk Mountains in New York State’s Hudson Valley and to Rumney, New Hampshire.
YWWC is supported by CatRock Ventures, The Cliffs at LIC, The Mohonk Preserve, Mountain Skills, Evolv, Dank Banana Bread, Clif Bar, Outdoor Research, and your generous donations.
