September 15th, 2013: eScience Labs is proud to partner with the City Kids Wilderness Project, located in Jackson, Wyoming. The City Kids Wilderness Project is “a nonprofit, outdoor education program for underserved and at-risk inner-city youth (ages 11 to 24) from Washington, DC metropolitan area,” (http://citykids.org, 2013). The City Kids Wilderness Project emphasizes personal growth, confidence, and leadership through experiential learning in an outdoor environment. Further, the program encourages its youth participants to appreciate their natural surroundings, academically engage themselves, and build lasting relationships. Friendships built through the City Kids Wilderness Project often create stability and a more positive outlook for youths who may lack infrastructural systems and opportunities.
Over 150 units of art supplies were donated by eScience Labs to the City Kids Wilderness Project to promote their mission to create well-rounded young adults. We are thankful for the opportunity to support such a noble organization, and look forward to a continued relationship in the years to come.
