The Sierra Club Inner City Outings Youth Program serves as a bridge that enables inner city youth, disabled individuals, and others to visit and develop an appreciation for our natural environment. We work with schools, community groups, and other agencies to create safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences for persons who might not otherwise have them. ICO outings promote individual growth through group activities and environmental and outdoor skills education.
In addition to the hikes and outdoor education events throughout the year, the Sierra Club was involved in a special Earth Day 2012 event. Inner City Outings volunteers were involved in activities at two transitional housing facilities for homeless families. During the program, our volunteers provided environmental education about conservation, nature and the Sierra Club. The program benefited at-risk youth from low income families and helped to provide the youngsters with a positive atmosphere to learn about environmental conservation and nature.
