Big City Mountaineers

To instill critical life skills in the lives of under-resourced urban youth through transformative wilderness mentoring expeditions.
Michael Leming
Each Big City Mountaineers expedition serves 5 under-served, racially diverse urban youth between the ages of 13 and 18 that often have no experience outside of their neighborhoods. On expedition, mentors guide youth to overcome challenges, illuminate the meaning of their accomplishments and highlight their strengths in a 1:1 ratio. Our youth improve self-esteem, self-awareness and responsibility, and return home better equipped to make critical career, education and healthy lifestyle decisions.
