Sierra Club Inspiring Connections Outdoors is a community outreach
program that provides opportunities for urban youth and adults to explore,
enjoy, and protect the natural world.
Children who run, swim, climb, and paddle are not only
more fit physically, but are more likely to grow into adults who are
respectful stewards of nature.
Fostering teamwork and cooperation are major aspects of
the Inspiring Connections outdoors experience. Participants naturally develop
interpersonal skills and self esteem through their outdoor experiences
with positive adult role models.
