Mission Statement

Austin Inner City Outings is a community outreach program of the Sierra Club that provides low-income, inner city youth with trips to wilderness. Volunteer leaders, certified and specially trained in recreational, outdoor, and safety skills as well as environmental education conduct wilderness adventures for youth of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, hearing or visually impaired individuals, and the physically disabled. From backpacking trips to neighborhood cleanups to naturalist-led hikes through local greenbelts and preserves, ICO volunteers introduce all people to the natural world and teach them how important it is to protect and restore wild places.

Description

Provide cultural, educational, social, & recreational activities to at risk/detached teens by mainstreaming into existing programs by collaborarting or providing programs.
