cityWILD is a bold effort to bring the typically exclusive world of outdoor experiential education to a broad non-traditional audience: low-income youth of color. For the past 14 years, we have been providing tuition-free, comprehensive experiential education programs for urban youth (10-18 years old) in northeast Denver.
Our mission is to provide low income, culturally diverse youth with outdoor and environmental service learning opportunities that promote developmental themes of personal empowerment, leadership and community participation. Intensive programs (students spend 1-4 afternoons per week at cityWILD throughout the school year) are combined with dedicated staff and carefully coordinated support services, resulting in a positive influence on students’ school, work, and family experiences.
On Thursday, May 17th, from 6:00-7:30 pm, we are hosting a dinner and fundraiser at the cityWILD offices. cityWILD students will be presenting their service learning project and leading group initiatives to show off their skills!
The event is free and you won’t be required to donate (but it’s always appreciated!). The worst that could happen is you come eat dinner on us, meet some cool people, and find out a bit more about a great local nonprofit. We want people who care about the mission of cityWILD to come and be a part of this event, and to donate if they can and want to.
