VAMOS OUTDOORS PROJECT
BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH CONNECTION TO THE LAND AND ACCESS TO THE OUTDOORS
VAMOS OUTDOORS PROJECT OVERVIEW
WMBC and Vamos Outdoors Project have partnered to offer Latiné, Migrant, and multi-lingual youth in our community the opportunity to build community through mountain biking on Galbraith Mountain and the Waterfront Pump Track.
Thanks to volunteer ride leaders, monetary donations, and donated bikes from Kona Bikes and Specialized Bicycles we are able to provide bikes, helmets, and instruction to students for free - weekly, from Spring through Fall.
Vamos Outdoors Project is a local non-profit that has cultivated a strong relationship with Latiné, migrant, and multi-lingual youth in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. They provide outreach, transportation, food, and snacks for each program. Spanish language use is encouraged and supported by volunteers during rides, creating a low-pressure space for youth to explore the outdoors, and create community.
This partnership is thriving and we are so happy to see many of the kids returning each season and sharing their passion with their friends and family.
