Challenge

Studies have shown that children who are connected to nature are healthier, happier, and smarter. Unfortunately, access to nature for underserved communities is limited by financial and transportation issues. Through the funds raised by Inside the Outdoors Foundation, ITO helps communities over financial barriers by providing sponsorships to our programs. Over 40% of the students attending an ITO school program are from low income schools and need sponsorship to attend our program.

Solution

The Mission of the Inside the Outdoors Foundation is to provide financial, educational, and advisory support to the Inside the Outdoors Science Study Programs. Inside the Outdoors programs empower students, teachers, parents and the community through hands-on educational experiences in the natural world to expand their knowledge, understanding and stewardship of the environment.
This project provides over 55,000 Southern California students from underserved communities with full and partial scholarships to attend hands-on environmental education programs.

Long-Term Impact

Funding will allow 55,000 students to attend an ITO program empowering them through educational experiences in the natural world to expand their knowledge, understanding and stewardship of the environment. Making them happier, healthier, and smarter.
