The Peaks Project

Location: New York, New York

Mission: To teach New York City youth how to ski and snowboard.

Program: The Peaks Project gives underprivileged children in NYC the opportunity to participate in winter sports, specifically skiing and snowboarding, while promoting camaraderie and personal growth. The Peaks Project differs from other organizations in that it works with the same group of children throughout an entire winter. This allows participants to gain proficiency in various snowsports while developing a deeper connection to the mountains and the greater winter sports community.
