Economic Equity in Outdoor Recreation

The Blackpackers Mission

A 501(c)(3) Organization meeting those at the intersection of underrepresentation and economic vulnerability.

Our mission is two-fold:

  1. To provide gear, outdoor excursions and outdoor education for free or at subsidized cost.
  2. To connect participants with volunteer opportunities, internships, jobs, and post-secondary education resources to create a pipeline from outdoor recreation to outdoor industry careers.

In these ways, we can create economic equity in outdoor recreation.
