Youth Outside is currently exploring opportunities to strategically scale our successful Cultural Relevancy Series in order to offer it nationwide.

Would you please provide your feedback via this survey by August 31? It should take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and will help us approach this project as thoughtfully as possible. Many thanks!

Support for this process was provided by a grant from the Pisces Foundation, which seeks ways to accelerate to a world where people and nature thrive together.
 
“Cultural Relevancy is effectively reaching and engaging communities in a manner that is consistent with the cultural context and values of that community; while effectively addressing the disparities of diversity and inclusion within an organization’s entire structure.”
