Learn more about our programs:
Our intersectional curriculum treats environmental justice as inseparable from the racial and economic issues close to students’ lived experiences. We tie this education to service projects that inspire and equip our youth with the tools they need to address these systematic disparities in their communities. Our culturally-integrative leadership development, mentorship, anti-oppression training, and skill-building education deepen participants’ knowledge of the underlying causes that most affect their communities.
Most of our young adult participants live in the shadow of mountains and forests, and never visit due to many barriers and do not see themselves positively reflected in the outdoors. tSB breaks down those barriers and ensures that, no matter their starting point, participants receive all the support needed to engage in the outdoors and integrate positive risk-taking and personal wellness habits.
Our participants not only connect with the outdoors through activity, they also develop the tenacity and determination needed to master any new skills and push the horizons of their own boundaries, which explains our motto, “push your growing edge”.
