2017 Force of Nature: Women Speaker Series

  • YMCA 5 West 63rd Street New York, NY, 10023 United States

STOKED's managing director Antonia Smith is taking part in the series is titled “Engaging Girls and Women in the Outdoors: A conversation on mentorship”.  A life lived outdoors begins in childhood, but not every child has the same access or relationship to the outdoors.

Presented as a panel, and moderated by Sarah Knapp, Founder of OutdoorFest, hear from nonprofit leaders from StokedSheJumps, and Sierra Club ICO, who work to bring youth, including girls, into the great outdoors. Not only will you learn what’s working and why, but how you can get involved in volunteering and mentorship to change someone’s life. Venue graciously provided by REI’s partner, the Appalachian Mountain Club, in collaboration with the YMCA. It's FREE to attend.
