Gratitude: In their own words
Here are just some of the notes, quotes, and testimonials that beautifully capture the essence of experiences that have been enjoyed through Big Sur Land Trust’s Youth Outdoor Programs.
“One huge thing I got from the [Youth Outdoor Leadership Program] was confidence. Usually this would have been a no for me because I would have gotten too intimidated, but I tried so many things that I will continue for the rest of my life."
- Youth Leader, 2021
"The three-day experience nourished the body, mind and soul of the participants. It was empowering to hear about the initial feelings of hesitation felt by some of the first-time campers slowly disappear as they immersed themselves in the breathtaking views that Big Sur has to offer. The girls encouraged one another to try new things and supported each other during the long hikes up hills and mountains. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect or qualified group of people to guide and encourage the girls to step outside their comfort zone and take in all that nature has to offer. Using nature as an example of resiliency and community, GHGH girl leaders are ready to start the year advocating for the socio-emotional well-being of girls in Monterey County."
- Michael L. Jackson, President & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County and Erika Matadamas, Girls' Health in Girls' Hands (GHGH) Program Manager
