Our mission is to teach and frame STEAM and nature-based education through a lens that centers and elevates the stories, ways of knowing, individual needs, and lived experiences of Black and Brown communities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Since launching our Wayfinders program in 2016, Camp ELSO has distributed 560 free hands-on STEAM kits, engaged 227 BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) youth in our programs, partnered with over 35 field trip sites, provided 395 hours of workforce and leadership development for BIPOC emerging leaders and collaborated on five community-responsive projects.
This is a chance to play a role and make a huge impact by supporting a Portland-based and Black- and Brown-led organization intertwining cultural perspectives into youth education in your community. Justice and systemic change requires ACTION. Be a part of the CHANGE!
The first 75 people to donate will receive a specially designed Portland pin by Portland tattoo artist Ruby Lee sponsored by the PDX Shapers group!
