Economic Equity in Outdoor Recreation
The Blackpackers Mission
A 501(c)(3) Organization meeting those at the intersection of underrepresentation and economic vulnerability.
Our mission is two-fold:
1.) To provide gear, outdoor excursions and outdoor education for free or at subsidized cost
2.) To connect participants with volunteer opportunities, internships, jobs, and post-secondary education resources to create a pipeline from outdoor recreation to outdoor industry careers.
In these ways, we can create economic equity in outdoor recreation.
