The Young Member (YM) committee in the Appalachian Mountain Club's (AMC) Boston Chapter is dedicated to encouraging people in their 20s and 30s to get involved in the AMC and enjoy the outdoors!
With many volunteer leaders and co-leaders, we offer a variety of activities and events. You may find us leading day hikes, backpacking, social events, local walks, trail work, kayaking, mountain biking, biking, skiing, camping, and other activities. We sponsor trips throughout the year, most of which involve exploring different regions of New England. All of our leaders and co-leaders have completed an outdoor safety and leadership course offered by the AMC.
Nationally, the AMC promotes the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of the Appalachian region. We believe these resources have intrinsic worth and also provide recreational opportunities, spiritual renewal, and ecological and economic health for the region. Because successful conservation depends on active engagement with the outdoors, we encourage people to experience, learn about, and appreciate the natural world.
