Mission Statement

Introducing urban families to the transformative powers of the outdoors!

Description

Urban Outdoor Outreach, originally known as FreeRiders Community and Youth Outreach Service, was started in 2016 by Jazmine Coburn. FreeRiders became Urban Outdoor Outreach in 2019 as Jazmine narrowed down her mission and true passion- to introduce urban youth to the transformative powers of the outdoors.

We believe that everyone has the right to adventure no matter their skin tone or economic status. About 70 percent of the youth in the United States, from ages 6 to 24, who engage in outdoor recreational activities are white. Closing this racial and economic "adventure gap" benefits not only the youth themselves, but also American conservation.

Urban Outdoor Outreach is here to make that change. Outdoor adventure for everyone is what we are striving for.
