M: STL - GGO Programming and Curriculum SA VISTA
The Gateway to the Great Outdoors program was developed to allow underserved and impoverished students across the US equitable access to a comprehensive environmental education. The mission of GGO is to empower underserved youth to enhance their scientific literacy of their local natural environment through classroom and field-based environmental education and leadership development activities. This program allows students to experience the natural wonders of the outdoors, while also providing them with strong mentorship and academic support. While other EE programs focus solely on mentorship, augmented curricula or outdoor adventure, GGO is unique in that it integrates the strength of all three: (1) weekly STEM-based classroom enrichment related to the environment, (2) monthly outdoor activities that support classroom learning, and (3) year-round mentoring by local university students and community members.
