Summary

This project will provide a child with the ability to go on trips like hiking, fishing, white water rafting and kayaking, at no cost, in a time when such activities are rare in urban communities. We want to provide healthy, positive alternatives for our youth and show them positive examples of leadership. We are providing an opportunity for a child between the ages of 8 and 13 who would never get a chance to experience these activities and build teamwork and leadership skills at the same time.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

With crime rising to 80% over the national average we need to provide safe, affordable alternatives for our children. Health driven programs in schools are being cut. Our parks and recreational areas are being underutilized and face budget cuts and elimination as an affordable entertainment alternative.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will allow children to participate in safe, affordable activities that will expose them to environments and people outside their community that they might not have experienced. It will also allow them to develop life building skills like team work and leadership in a non-threatening environment. This project will provide an entertaining, healthy alternative for our youth in our local community parks and recreational areas.

Potential Long Term Impact

The children will be surrounded by volunteers from their community who are there to support them and develop positive relationships and counteract the negative images they might be receiving. We hope they will see examples in our volunteers that will inspire them to be future leaders. We encourage parental involvement to help foster positive memories for families and an experience they can always carry with them and reinforce what we are trying to accomplish.
