Sierra Club's Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) provides opportunities for people with limited access to the outdoors - especially youth - to safely explore, enjoy, and protect the natural world.
The Sierra Club envisions a just, equitable, and sustainable future where all people benefit from a healthy thriving planet and a direct connection to nature. Our outings program Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) engages youth partners (community based organizations, schools, and other youth groups) in co-creating affirming experiences that range from hiking, canoeing, camping, rock climbing, stewardship work, & backpacking.
ICO volunteer run groups contribute to the creation of more equitable outdoor environments nationwide by offering youth with limited access to the outdoors to outings that promote wellness, connection, and leadership. Active groups nationwide offer training to volunteers.
