Minnesota Inspiring Connections Outdoors (MN ICO), part of the North Star Chapter of the Sierra Club, provides inner city youth with an introduction to outdoor adventures including day hikes, backpacking, canoeing, camping, and skiing. In conjunction with community agencies, MN ICO leads small groups of youth on, what is for many, their first outdoor experience. MN ICO provides the volunteer leaders with training in outdoor recreation and safety as well as all the equipment needed for the trip, while the agencies provide youth and a staff person eager for fun. MN ICO serves agencies based in the Twin Cities, but has volunteers from all over Minnesota.
