In celebration of the 20th anniversary of our founding in 1996, City Kids Wilderness Project is launching an Associate Board. The Associate Board is made up of young professionals who share an interest in youth development, philanthropy, and the outdoors.  Associate Board members participate in social events and fundraising, and have the opportunity to participate in City Kids activities.  The Associate Board is a fun way to network and connect with outdoor adventures, as well as gain board experience and receive mentorship from the City Kids Board of Directors.

If you would like to learn more, or apply for membership in the 2017 Associate Board class, please contact Mattison Boyer, Director of Development, at
