How can you inspire your friends, neighbors, and community to discover the great outdoors and reconnect with nature?

:

Peak 7 Adventures exists to provide first rate outdoor adventure experiences that engages youth spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally to help them realize a greater potential. Our vision is to challenge youth beyond their perceived limits, inspire hope that's easily transparent back in their daily lives, all the while revealing God the Creator through His creation. Because we believe that all youth should have the opportunity to experience the wilderness firsthand, Peak 7 specifically targets those coming from the under-resourced demographics including youth from: foster homes, homeless shelters, youth drop in centers, boy & girl ranches, correctional facilities etc. Through our whitewater rafting, rock climbing and backpacking experiences it's our hope that we can inspire a lasting change and transformation that the participants can carry with them throughout life.

How do you plan to use the $1,000 grant and $500 airline gift card to turn your idea into a reality?

If we were to receive this grant, the $1,000 would go to provide 4 homeless youth a 5 day backpacking experience up in the northern cascades where they can escape the harsh realities of life and discover their true potential. Throughout this adventure they will come to learn and develop key attributes such as team work, trust and confidence in an effort to empower then to make the most of life. The $500 airline gift card would be raffled off in order to provide the same experience for another one to two youth.

This is a good idea I think should be implemented in all cities of the United States. An escape for the homeless troubled youth, whom have nothing, and nothing to look foreward to it's great, and keeps them preocupied for the time being. I would suggest something like this where I live too.
