Phoenix Inner City Outings Program
The Phoenix ICO program was established in the early 90's and re-established after a several-year hiatus in 2000. The purpose of the Inner City Outings Program is to provide opportunities for people, primarily inner city youth, to experience wilderness and nature in a way that they rarely can in an urban environment. The program partners with non-profit agencies who serve these communities.
We hope that by building a relationship with nature for these special people, we will spark a love for the out-of-doors that will ultimately help to protect these areas for future generations. We also hope that our Sierra Club leaders will provide positive role models and good examples of friendship, caring, and cooperation. Overall, our goal is to get out of the city and enjoy Arizona at its best while positively affecting someone's life.
