Chair:Marty Cohen

Inner City Outings is a community outreach program, providing wilderness adventures for city youth of New Jersey. Volunteer certified outings leaders conduct outings (generally day-trips) on weekends. If you would like to experience the rewards of introducing inner-city youth to the wonders of nature, your involvement is encouraged and you are requested to contact us at the above e-mail addresses.

This past season we accomplished three hikes, taking a total of 28 children into the woods. The main reason for these not very robust statistics is that the current Chair has not had much success in garnering consistently active volunteers. That is not to say that the Chair doesn't appreciate the several volunteers who have assisted on hikes, they have been a great help; but in addition, it would be nice to have some regular hikers step up. The Chair should not be the only one in the organization who is able and willing to safely lead a group into and out of the woods. It is also the Chair's belief that an active steering committee would go a long way towards improving matters. Accordingly, if you are an experienced hiker willing to commit to leading two hikes per year, or if you are willing to commit to attending three steering committee meetings per year, and performing some additional assignments totaling 20 hours per year, please contact the Chair. The operative word here is "commit".
