Call For Volunteers
The Metro NY Section is looking for dedicated community-minded volunteers to serve as climbing mentors and committee members for our pilot "Climb Like a Girl” program. This initiative is to provide an indoor rock climbing summer mentorship at The Cliffs in Queens to low-income teenage girls from the Long Island City community (via Urban Upbound). Mentors would be required to commit three (3) two-hour weekend morning sessions per month at the The Cliffs from June through August. Mentors will also regularly work alongside Urban Upbound advisors to tie climbing with their life-skills curriculum. This program is an opportunity to expose climbing and its benefits to a population that is not normally reached by our sport. Female climbers are strongly encouraged to apply as mentors. We are also looking for a few members to assist the program founder in continuing its development. For more information and to get involved please email the Metro NY Section Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
