Team Building in Nature

My Students

I coach for a public high school in San Francisco that is dedicated to ensuring students are in a safe and supported environment that helps them advocate for themselves, grow as a community, and are poised for success in college. Unfortunately, the need to provide educational equity to all my students heavily exceeds the resources available. My students are beautiful individuals that are challenging racial and social-economical stereotypes and how society views them and their families.

I have the privilege of coaching Dragonboat to an incredibly diverse group of students whose families are struggling to survive the exponentially increasing standard of living in San Francisco.

These students desperately need a sense of belonging as the community they came into is slowly deteriorating around them. I am hoping that with your help I can provide support and resources to these students to ensure they are given access to the education they deserve.

My Project

As San Francisco becomes more gentrified and crowded with technology and high rises it has become essential for our team to practice and being in nature and understanding the natural resources around us. Many students have never left the city to explore the mountains bordering the bay area and many others are new comers to the US who have not had the opportunity to explore their new home.

We would love the opportunity to camp, bond, and learn about our surroundings.

We are interested in learning about each other and developing a stronger sense of friendship and team work that will continue for the rest of our lives.

Because our athletes have never experienced camping before we are under resourced and are in need of these requested tents.
