Last week, two friends and I took a group of 15 kids rock climbing for their first time through the program, Climbing for Hope. I've been volunteering with teenage girls at Casa Acogida, a home for sexual abuse victims. Over the last three months I've built relationships with the girls and longed to be able to provide a more meaningful experience than only teaching them English three times a week. Reflecting back on my time at City Kids Wilderness Project, I thought the outdoors would be the perfect vessel for growing, healing, and building community. Chatting with friends, I was able to connect with Chalex, a local climber and founder of "Climbing for Hope." Collaborating with Chalex, Casa Acogida, and two orphanages, we were able to host the first of hopefully many events.
