Our volunteer youth mentors are the driving force for good behind Big City Mountaineers' powerful mission. When you volunteer with us, you'll have the opportunity to help under-resourced youth realize their potential. Week-long Expedition Mentors: Our week-long backpacking expeditions are a challenging, adventurous way to positively impact teenagers' lives. Volunteers are expected to hike up to eight miles per day while leading youth with limited outdoor experience. All week-long programs run during the summer months. Overnight Camp Volunteers: Our Overnight Camp Volunteers are responsible for mentoring 8-to-12-year-olds on their very first camping experience. These volunteers help lead all camp activities, assist with meal times and serve as positive examples and mentors to BCM's youngest participants.
