Open House – AMC’s Youth Opportunities Program

Thursday, March 12 (10 AM – 3 PM) AND Tuesday, March 24 (4 PM – 8 PM)

The Appalachian Mountain Club’s Youth Opportunities Program invites you to our Open House! Stop by AMC-Boston (5 Joy Street, Boston, MA) anytime during open house hours to learn how to get your youth into the outdoors and access:

  • Free use of outdoor equipment (sleeping bags, tents, hiking boots, backpacks…)
  • Trip planning assistance
  • Advanced training (Canoe, Wilderness First Aid)
  • Discounted lodging at various AMC lodging destinations in NH, MA, and NJ

The mission of Youth Opportunities Program (YOP) is to make the outdoors accessible and meaningful to youth who would not otherwise have access to these resources. YOP operates as a resource center for youth agencies throughout Boston and the Northeast, providing youth workers and teachers the skills they need to independently take their youth outdoors.

Contact Jamie Aspenson for more information or to RSVP: Jaspenson@outdoors.org or 617-391-6637. We hope to see you there!
