  • Group size 30 people
  • Instructor Anne Hayward, BCM

Join REI Partner, Big City Mountaineers (BCM) as we discuss opportunities to mentor under-resourced youth on week-long backpacking expeditions. BCM's mission is to tap into critical life skills in under resourced youth through transformative wilderness mentoring experiences. Our professionally guided programs aim to improve integrity, self-esteem, responsibility, and communication skills in youth participants, and our volunteer mentors play a critical role in that process. Through our partnership with REI we are looking for positive adult role models. If you have (a little) backpacking experience and (a lot of) passion for getting youth outdoors, come learn about how you can be on an expedition in 2020. You can learn more about BCM at This will be an online Virtual meeting. You will receive additional login details a day or two prior to the meeting. Call in number is (669) 900-6833, Meeting ID: 912 285 487
