Our program with Harlem Lacrosse Boston is run as a group mentoring structure, consisting of twelve students and two young adult mentors. The mentors select students from their schools to participate in our outdoor program based on their performance in school and attitude on the field, as well as interest in exploring outdoor adventures. The kids commit to coming on a trip every two weeks for six months. These outings are attended by twelve kids, one or two mentor(s), one volunteer, and one senior EY instructor.
Our program with Big Brothers Big Sisters is run as a one-to-one mentoring structure that utilizes the Big and Little "matches" that have already been established within their organization. When matches sign up for our outdoor program, they commit to coming on one trip every six weeks for at least six months. These outings are attended by three to six matches and one senior EY instructor.
