Inspire Connections Outdoors!

Volunteer to get urban kids into nature!

As an ICO volunteer, you introduce the natural outdoors to youth from communities with limited access to it. You connect and reconnect them to nature for the benefit of both.

The Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) program helps create the next generation of environmental justice and social justice leaders through building community and increasing exposure to outdoor recreation, advocacy, and leadership training.

With agency partners, you lead group outings to

  • Improve kids’ health and well-being.
  • Create more friends of the earth.
  • Show them a new world view.
Make a Difference . . . Empower local young people to enjoy their natural birthright--access to public lands and parks where they can
  • Bond with nature’s wonders
  • Be curious and creative
  • Manage stress
  • Learn to "Leave No Trace"
