Give the gift of the outdoors to our youth!
Whatever level you choose we will assist you in leveraging your donation with matching funds from grants or other efforts to make your donation go the distance and ensure that our local area youth have access to the transformational experiential education programs we offer through SOLE’s Youth Scholarship Fund!
Each year schools and youth programs that serve underserved youth reach out to SOLE to provide the intentional and transformational programs that we offer, including our nationally recognized SnowSchool Experience program. In 2017 alone, SOLE served over 800 youth. To provide these opportunities, SOLE often needs to subsidze programs through SOLE’s Youth Scholarship Fund.
Many of those we serve in these programs are underserved and deemed ‘at risk’ (over 40% living in poverty). Additionally, many have never had the opportunity to pursue the novel experiences that we provide due to the socio-economic barriers which exist. For example, based on a 2015 survey over 70% of youth had never had the opportunity to explore and learn in the outdoors.
SOLE aims to raise essential funds each year and offer individual and program scholarships through SOLE’s Youth Scholarship Fund. As applications are received SOLE’s Board of Directors will review applications to ensure that they meet eligibility requirements to include evidence that they serve underserved populations and/or qualify for government assistance if they are a family in need.
