Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Chicago Inspiring Connections Outdoors is part of the National Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO), an outreach program of the Sierra Club. ICO offers hiking and camping trips, boating and skiing outings, environmental service projects and other outdoor adventures to young people who might not otherwise have access to these experiences.
T he Sierra Club San Francisco Bay chapter established the first ICO group in 1971. Today, a dedicated core of volunteer leaders located in approximately 50 cities across the United States work with local social service agencies and schools to provide wilderness experiences for people who otherwise might not have them.
With the guidance of ICO volunteer leaders, participants discover the beauty of wild lands and how to enjoy these places without harming them. Young people learn valuable survival skills and develop the ability to face challenges outside their urban environments. Interpersonal skills and self-esteem grow as a natural result of teamwork and an active relationship with the outdoors.
ICO does its own fundraising to provide these activities at little or no cost to the participants
