Economic Equity in Outdoor Recreation
The Blackpackers Mission
A 501(c)(3) Organization
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 opportunites, internships, jobs, and post-secondary education resources to create pipeline from outdoor recreation to outdoor industry careers.
In these ways, we can create economic equity in outdoor recretion and attempt to attack the wealth gap in vulnerable communities.
