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 youth in our community the opportunity to experience mountain biking on Galbraith Mountain and the Waterfront pumptrack. Thanks to volunteer ride leaders, donations, and donated bikes from Kona 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 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 and leaders 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.
