Outdoor Afro selects and trains 100-plus volunteer leaders nationwide each year. After training, volunteers then host local events in their communities for participants to experience what Black joy and healing moments truly look and feel like in nature. Volunteer leaders create and guide more than 1,200 virtual and in-person activities annually through Meetup.
Local activities include but are not limited to: hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, swimming, sailing/boating, cycling, birding, paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing, skiing, ice climbing, geocaching, and horseback riding. Volunteer leaders guide these area adventures that leave lasting impacts on family members, friends, and neighborhoods through original photos, videos and stories shared across Outdoor Afro’s popular website and social media.
