Outdoor Outreach

50 programs providing opportunities for 475 individual youth to explore state parks, challenge themselves, and discover their strengths. The grant will benefit middle- and high school-aged youth from underserved, "park-poor" communities in San Diego. With every opportunity to hike, bike, surf, camp and kayak, Outdoor Outreach helps youth build resilience and confidence in their power to make a difference. The grant will also allow Outdoor Outreach to work with San Diego Unified School District on recreational learning programs focused on the Tijuana River Valley and backed by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). 
State Parks: Torrey Pines State Beach & State Natural Reserve, Border Field State Park, Silver Strand State Beach, Seaside State Beach, Mount San Jacinto State Park, Matlahuayl State Marine Reserve, Cuyamaca State Park
