Get Involved! BAWT - Awesome Nonprofit that Helps Get Youth Outdoors!

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Get Involved! BAWT - Awesome Nonprofit that Helps Get Youth Outdoors!

Post by davidsheridan » Sat Dec 29, 2018 11:34 pm

Dear HST Community,

Do you have a passion for the outdoors and a passion for social and economic justice?

Getting involved with the Bay Area Wilderness Training (BAWT) community might be right for you.

BAWT is a non profit whose mission is to create equitable access to outdoor experiences for youth of color and low income youth.

The best way to learn more about BAWT and get involved is to start by attending a Discovery Sessions & Volunteer Night in Oakland, CA.
