    Big City Mountaineers breaks down barriers to outdoor access for youth who come from historically marginalized communities by providing a variety of nature-based experiences that are free of charge, fully outfitted, and professionally guided. In identifying the variety of barriers facing youth from marginalized communities, our programming enables them to better access the important benefits of time spent outdoors. By thoughtfully addressing these social, psychological, and material barriers, we create opportunities for youth to uncover their own sources of strength, resilience, confidence, serenity, and joy.

    BCM's experiential outdoor education programs foster the transformative power of developing a personal connection with nature, and allow students to discover the strength, resilience, and adaptability they've always had inside them. BCM provides students with the tools and support to translate those skills and mindsets from the trail into the rest of their lives.
