Urban Peaks promotes the positive and life-altering benefits of rock climbing and adventure based activities to disadvantaged, underrepresented youth.
We believe that participation in climbing and other adventure activities will provide potentially life-changing benefits and character building opportunities, promoting greater self-esteem development. Involvement in physical activities like rock climbing, enables a healthy lifestyle, raising fitness and wellness awareness in a supportive environment.
Focusing on eastern Massachusetts and centered in the city of Boston but with an area of interest encompassing all of New England, UP will provide financial support and program assistance for organizations serving underrepresented youth through climbing and adventure sports. UP will facilitate access to activities that expose under-served audiences to indoor and outdoor rock climbing programs and adventure-challenge facilities.
