I told you that we’re going to be moving in March. One of the things that I can now reveal is that I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of the Outdoor Afro leadership training group for 2016. I am excited about pushing forth the Outdoor Afro objectives as they fall directly in line with what I am doing with HoodHealth, the Old Skoolie 1863 Project, Science of Self and Sol Power Rising. This is just the tip of things that I’ll be pursuing and pushing for 2016!
“Sixty Leaders Will Create Relevant Outdoor Experiences in 26 States.
For the fifth year in a row, Outdoor Afro has recruited and selected enthusiastic volunteers from around the country to inspire black connections and leadership in nature. We are proud to be expanding to new cities including Boston, Denver, Miami, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, and Anchorage, AK
In April 2016, the Leadership Team will gather in Yosemite National Park to celebrate the National Park Service Centennial and in honor of the 150th Anniversary of the Buffalo Soliders’ stewardship of the park.
Utilizing an experiential learning model, the team will learn skills vital to Outdoor Afro’s national movement to increase Black engagement with nature. Workshops, including “Creating Community in the Outdoors” “African American Legacy of Stewardship and Conservation” and “Learning and Presenting on the Black History of Your Local Green Spaces,” will be lead by senior Outdoor Afro leaders as well as African American park service staff.
Outdoor Afro is deeply grateful to our sponsors including REI, KEEN Footwear, Klean Kanteen,Sierra Club, and National Wildlife Federation – California.”
