Getting Kids Outside with Raquel Gomez


For Raquel Gomez, getting outside has always been a way to be playful and adventurous. She’s done a lot of hiking, rock climbing and camping around the U.S. Raquel also has a passion for working with kids — she’s a youth climbing coach and has worked as a Wilderness Therapy Guide. But building a career in the outdoors wasn’t easy for Raquel. She loved to get outside as a kid, but didn’t see many outdoor athletes that looked like her. That’s why she founded Atabey Outdoors, a program that provides safe and fun outdoor adventures for Black, Indigenous and Girls of Color in Phoenix, Arizona.
