In celebration of the 20th anniversary of our founding, City Kids Wilderness Project launched an Associate Board in 2016, and its impact to the organization has already made a critical difference. The Associate Board is made up of talented professionals who share an interest in youth development, philanthropy, and the outdoors.  Associate Board members participate in outreach and fundraising, provide expertise and counsel to the City Kids team on areas of personal and professional expertise, and have the opportunity to volunteer and participate in City Kids programming. The Associate Board is an exciting way to network and connect with others in the DC region who are committed to supporting extraordinary opportunities for DC youth.

If you would like to learn more, or apply to be on the Associate Board, please contact Dan Ebert, Development Manager, at
