“Kids with more experience in nature, even if it’s just a view from their room of a natural landscape, are more psychologically resilient.”
-Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficient Disorder, quoted in Plenty magazine
Directly from the Tiangle ICO website:
Triangle Inner City Outings was founded in 1988 to provide enriching outdoor learning experiences that help youth participants:
- Overcome fears and misconceptions about the outdoors
- Develop comfort with and appreciation for the natural environment
- Develop a basic understanding of how ecosystems work
- Become protectors of the environment
- Develop self esteem and leadership skills
- Experience team approaches to challenges and problem-solving
Triangle Inner City Outings works with several youth organizations.
We’re always looking for volunteers! Please visit here if you would like to volunteer on a future trip.
