Perhaps now more than ever, area children need to be reacquainted with the great outdoors. Kids are now spending more time indoors and issues such as childhood obesity, diabetes, and asthma are on the rise at an alarming rate. Even more troubling are the teen drop-out rates and youth crime statistics. Our BIPOC communities are disproportionately affected by all these issues. TYO programs provide opportunities for our local diverse at-risk youth to get outdoors to be physically active and engage in their local nature areas, but we need your help.
How can I help?
TYO can help improve a child’s grades and school attendance, as well as their self-esteem and health. TYO has gathered experts in Childcare, Environment, Law Enforcement, Medicine, and Business to develop and implement our programs. Your donations will directly support local BIPOC youth’s engagement in outdoor active exploration and growth, opportunities their more affluent peers have in abundance.
Please donate today.
Your donation will help TYO continue to provide much-needed opportunities for the under-served youth in our programs. Our nature-based events are more than a simple day in nature, they are the very essence of personal growth and development, experiences their more affluent peers have in abundance.
