Get Outside BC is a collaborative youth leadership project that aims to strengthen youth attachment to British Columbia’s wilderness by empowering young leaders across the province.
Get Outside BC is a collaborative youth outdoor leadership program that strengthens youth attachment to BC’s wilderness. We empower youth aged 14-18 by teaching them hands-on skills in wilderness survival, leadership, and conservation in order to prepare them to lead projects that connect other youth to wild spaces. Rather than providing a one-time experience, Get Outside BC provides youth with tools and resources to develop an enduring connection to the outdoors and a lifelong identity as a natural leader.
Since 2011, we have cultivated thousands of young natural leaders across BC. Get Outside BC is a no-cost program to ensure that all youth can apply regardless of socio-economic status.
The Get Outside BC program includes learning hands-on leadership skills to reach the following goals:
Get Outside BC 2017 is a 4-month, 3-phase program taking place in two communities in British Columbia: Kelowna and Kimberley. To apply for one of the upcoming community projects, please click the links below:
