About Us

The Los Angeles Inspiring Connections Outdoors (Angeles Chapter) serves as a bridge that enables underserved youth, disabled individuals, and others to visit and develop an appreciation for our natural environment. We work with schools, community groups, and other agencies to create safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences for persons who might not otherwise have them. ICO outings promote individual growth through group activities and environmental science and outdoor skills education.

• In 2013, LA ICO led 139 outings for 4,949 children and 862 parents and teachers.

• LA ICO works with 60 different agencies, primarily Title I schools.

• LA ICO is an all-volunteer organization and is responsible for all of its own fundraising.

• LA ICO is one of 49 Inspiring Connections Outdoors groups nationwide that make up the Sierra Club’s national outreach program.

• LA ICO’s volunteer trip leaders receive safety, First Aid, and Sierra Club certified Outings Leader training and must pass a background check.

• LA ICO received the 2009 Associated Administrators of Los Angeles (LAUSD) Community Award and the Angeles Chapter Sierra Club 2008 Certificate of Merit.
