Our Mission is All Kids Outside.
Wilderness does not see fashion. Wilderness does not see good or bad grades. Wilderness welcomes all. Our quest is to make the outdoors accessible to all youth, so they can experience the inclusion of nature. Bringing students together from all around South King County, we introduce kids to the power of the outdoors.
Y.E.T.I. is a 501(c)(3) primarily serving students aged 5 to 18 in the South King County. Our programs are financially accessible to all. We work with students from diverse ethnic, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds.
We currently offer programs with curriculum in hiking, camping, backpacking, climbing, mountaineering, rafting, sea kayaking, sailing, stand up paddleboarding, and biking. If it is outside and challenging, we aim to find ways to let our youth experience it.
We are an all-volunteer organization. We've already served over 1000 kids. We are in the process of building a very bright future, hiring and ED full-time, and launching a new website. Please Join Us.Donate Now
"Y.E.T.I. gives youth the ability to push themselves past their previous limits, to reach things they didn't think were possible. It gave me and my peers a chance to take part in something new and exciting to love. Y.E.T.I. is far more than some trips into the wilderness, it gave me amazing opportunities and helped me find my courage. Thank you Y.E.T.I.!"
