Big city mountaineers

I learned I am stronger than I think and can do whatever I set my mind to.
— BCM Participant


*Georgina is currently a board member at Big City Mountaineers. 

Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. We partner with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential. Our curriculum improves self-esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually. BCM has a proven track record of improving young peoples’ lives with:
• Increased likeliness to stay in school
• Reduction in violence
• Reduction in drug use


In March 2017 I climbed Pico de Orizaba, Mexico’s highest peak (18,491 ft) on behalf of Big City Mountaineers (BCM), alongside 3 other amazing women: Elizabeth Williams, Emma Walker, Jessica Hamel.


We’d like to send a little love to all the people and brands who made this trip and film possible.
