Mission Statement

Urban Nature Partners PDX empowers youth from historically marginalized Portland communities through long term one-on-one mentoring relationships and access to meaningful outdoor experiences.

Description

We are committed to inclusivity and building social equity, both among the youth and families we serve, and in the environmental and outdoor communities as a whole.

We promote a holistic system of intertwinedrelationships between family, school, and community as the foundation of supporting each youth.

We take a strength-based approach by encouraging and building on the inherent capabilities in each youth.

We foster curiosity and experiential learning that promotes youth choice over curriculum driven programming.

We model our values in a cooperative organizational structure based on consensus decision making, mutual trust, and shared respect.
