Mission Statement

Project Get Outdoors envisions a world in which all kids, everyday, spend time outdoors. High-quality, efficient, outdoor programs are embedded in communities and have stable funding. These programs link youth and caring adult volunteers to exploration, play and reflection in nature near local communities so children grow to be healthy, comfortable outdoors, and knowledgeable and passionate about their land and community throughout their lives. Contact with nature provides physical, mental, social health benefits to all participants, and citizens demonstrate environmental stewardship behaviors.

Description

Project Get Outdoors, Inc. (Project GO) is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 to assist Minnesota communities in connecting children to nature exploration and outdoor learning during the out-of-school hours. Project GO was developed in response to Richard Louv's 2005 book, "Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder". With the help of our project partners, Project GO has developed a free Toolkit to guide communities through the stages of designing, implementing, evaluating and sustaining their own unique Project GO programs.
