Community Involvement

If I were to name the three most precious resources of life, I should say books, friends, and nature; and the greatest of these, at least the most constant and always at hand, is nature.

– John Burroughs; American naturalist

The SC Outfitters mission — to foster a diverse and inclusive outdoor community, while connecting as many students as possible with the wilderness of Southern California, the West, and beyond — occasionally directs us to look beyond the USC campus.

Whether that be through preserving the outdoor spaces we’re lucky to enjoy, or introducing local kids to the nature in their backyard.

Our community is comprised of energetic, passionate students who want to make a difference in their local outdoor spaces,

Past organizations we have worked with include Friends of the Ballona Wetlands and WYLD (Wilderness Youth Leadership Diversity). If your outdoor service organization is looking for new volunteers, please contact our Community Outreach Director.

We are also actively seeking local and corporate partnerships with outfitters and other outdoor-minded organizations. If you’re interested in reaching a young and ambitious audience of guides and members, please contact our Sponsorship Director.
