We strive to ensure that the lived experience of all youth is honored as part of the outdoor experience. We provide grantmaking, capacity-building and training to promote healthy lives and inspire future champions of the planet.
Our vision is for all youth to have the opportunity for meaningful experiences in nature.
From our staff, to our board, to our grantees, we value diversity
and strive to be inclusive.
We listen and learn so that we can remain relevant and effective,
using our leadership role to address needs as they arise.
We expect more of our work, navigating new pathways to transform
the way youth interact with, appreciate and care for the outdoors.
Our leadership role demands that we adapt with an open mind and
heart, keeping lines of communication open, and making adjustments to achieve
shared goals and to embrace opportunities.
We ignite momentum, attract resources, and rally support for a
cause that demands attention and action.
We practice prudent stewardship of our financial resources and the
resources of the planet, in order to serve future generations of youth and to
honor the trust of our donors.
