INTO THE WILD

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

:

They say a picture says a thousand words and it really speaks to ones soul as they imagine themselves in the picture itself. With the pictures of the Cerritos College Wilderness Club from their many great adventures it will inspire the great adventurer in them. I want to inspire a new generation of explorers out there and to really encourage them to explore the vast wilderness that our forefathers have explored and captured in an image. With that image set in the back of their brains, a lingering feeling of curiosity and longing will arise!! The reality is that the great adventures of others in image cannot only be seen or heard but it can be experienced! And so as i show the great memories and stories of past journeys, i will light the fire that once burned in many years past and once again venture out into the wild! TOGETHER!

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

I plan on using the grant money and airline gift card to bring urban youth students to a national park to have them experience the great outdoors, educate them on wilderness skills such as knot tying, educate them about environmental sustainable living, and to become young fit and well individuals. To measure my plans success is to be looking down the road when these young individuals have taken in the experience they have gained from going to hiking and or camping trips into their adulthood and will help teach their own sons and daughter helping move on the knowledge and healthy ideas for a better tomorrow. And all of this comes from going into the wilderness, together!

good overall idea, title and the video show a little snippet of how your group was amazed by the beauty of Zion National Park. this club is a good leading example of what a small group of young people can do to better themselves and their fellow students. I am a true believer in peer to peer support as that younger folks tend to be more at home when they are with others their age. They tend to be more willing to participate and engage, and of course something positive such as this can change a persons perspective and the natural feats of the world can do just that..

If we do win and get additional money from school fundraising, we will most likely head to another National Park. Most likely one that is out of state. We hope to bring at least 25 individuals with us for this adventure.

i forgot to mention that your title is quite good and your video looked great only second to quality to the homeless youth to the north cascade video.. your facebook page is quite impressive with all the pictures you guys have amassed from all the hikes and trips your group has gone to. I would highly suggest that you guys have an official website and stop using social media websites as a main page for your group. A website would greatly show interested people in helping you guys generate needed funds for your activities

i read all the others and also looked at their links, videos and pictures and also comments on their pages and it seemed something happened between you guys and the current 2nd place team. I do not think it was slander but either way you guys should not retort to dissing others on public domains.
But i did not add that incident to my vote. as i looked at both yours and the 2nd place group, there is a big difference in idea of how to bring your respective community to the outdoors. Your mission to me was quite far better and would do more impact to the community. To bring the youth to the outdoors would do great things to their young lives and would help shape their mindset. Again i voted for you guys but please refrain from anymore negative comments.

They are low income urban city city kids that has never experienced the outdoors or has never been to the wilderness ever! We are trying to raise awareness of the great outdoors and even teach them wilderness skills.
