ICO (Inner City Outings) Volunteers Needed!

Inner City Outings (ICO) is an all-volunteer outreach program of the Sierra Club that provides wilderness experiences for individuals who might not otherwise have them. Most participants are young people from urban communities, but ICO also conducts trips for other groups that do not have access to outdoor activities.

The goal of the Inner City Outings program is to help people discover the beauty and challenges of the wild places we treasure, acquire the skills necessary to enjoy them safely, and learn that human activities and the natural world are interrelated. The program’s success helps increase environmental awareness, interpersonal skills, and the participants ‘ self-esteem through active involvement with nature.

We have several ICO Outings scheduled for this spring already! If you would like to volunteer for any of our ICO outings, contact [masked] for details on training and upcoming dates.

Before you know it, you will be having more fun than the kids!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
