The Mazamas has a long history of training the next generation of climbers and outdoor stewards. In the last few years we have made Youth Outreach a major focus for the Mazamas, and this initiative is heavily featured in Mazamas2020, our current 3-year strategic plan.

Goal: Lead our state and region in transforming our youth and community members into engaged outdoor citizens, advocates, and educators through values based programming.

Strategy 1: Stabilize and expand the Mazamas outdoor school programming in partnership with state and regional partners.

Strategy 2: Lead efforts to make Oregon a national leader in supporting and advocating for the importance, benefits, and interests of outdoor recreation and our public lands.

Strategy 3: Support our partners in creating sustainable stewardship programs in our state and region to develop and maintain the Pacific Northwest’s outdoor recreation infrastructure.
