WHAT WE DO
We create spaces of communal healing for youth impacted by incarceration.
We do this by facilitating healing-centered outdoor experiences and abolitionist and decolonial social-emotional and environmental education. We provide a wide range of experiences including, community gardening, hiking, surfing, rock climbing, camping, and art workshops to connect youth to the healing power of nature and learning in community.
The Bloom Project Runs from October - July
We have two programs: a monthly program for middle to high school-aged youth (11-20), and a climbing program for elementary aged youth (5-10).
For our older youth (ages 11-20) participation includes:
Monthly meet ups and 2 overnight camping trips
Learning about social and environmental justice issues and processing issues relevant to our lives, and developing our skills and practices for dealing with difficult emotions.
For our little ones (ages 5-10) participation includes:
Monthly climbing events in partnership with Armadillo Boulders
Learning and reflecting on emotional growth, leadership, and building community with one another
