Who We Support
TAXA's vision is to transform the way we live, learn and play outside, and that includes activating our vision throughout our communities in any way we can.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and build their futures through one-to-one mentoring. These relationships support the critical social and emotional development needed to help build resilience and promote the mental health and well-being of thousands of children they serve.
Black Outside, Inc has one simple mission: Reconnect Black/ African-American youth to the outdoors through culturally relevant outdoor experiences. They intentionally craft experiences that build off of the powerful history of people of color in the outdoors and deepen the leadership skills of our youth.
NOLS Affinity Programs
NOLS affinity courses bring together people who seek wilderness experiences and share community or kinship. Creating an affinity space in the wilderness means building community as well as outdoor skills. It means learning and exploring with a group of people who relate to your lived experience.
Partnering with local organizations to amplify our vision was a natural extension of the TAXA mission and we look forward to growing relationships with even more organizations in our communities.
