What we're about
Chicago Inspiring Connections Outdoors (https://www.facebook.com/ChicagoICO/) is part of the National Inspiring Connections Outdoors (http://www.sierraclub.org/ico) (ICO), an outreach program of Sierra Club Outdoors (https://content.sierraclub.org/ourwildamerica/outdoors), contributing to the creation of more equitable outdoor environments by connecting youth with limited access to the outdoors with outings that promote wellness, exploration & leadership (i.e. hiking, camping, indoor rock climbing, and canoeing)
Volunteers must be 18+, submit an application and go through a background check before joining us on any outings (we work with youth via our community partners). Volunteers must also be members of the Sierra Club in order to be covered by the Sierra Club's insurance policy on outings ~become a member here (https://sierra.secure.force.com/donate/rc_connect__campaign_designform?id=70131000001LmZDAA0&formcampaignid=70131000001LlnTAAS&_ga=2.54379688.1268844820.1517858157-2125147679.1507229176).
