The North Face has awarded a $2,500 grant to the Appalachian Mountain Club to help children and families explore the outdoors. The grant will directly support the AMC’s Youth Mountain Adventure Program (YMAP), which is part of the AMC’s Youth Opportunities Program (YOP) for urban and at-risk youth. The AMC was selected from hundreds of applications because of its efforts to make active outdoor participation more accessible to youth. The grant is part of the inaugural commitment of $250,000 from The North Face Explore Fund, enabling more than 100 programs that will affect an estimated 85,000 young people.
