Who Seattle ICO Serves

Seattle ICO offers wilderness experiences to Seattle metropolitan area youth who might otherwise be unable to get out of the city. ICO volunteers work year-round through partnerships with selected elementary, middle, and high schools and social services agencies that serve youth in the Seattle area. Our youth range in age from 8 to 20, and are from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. ICO provides the equipment, financial assistance, and trained leaders with wilderness, first aid, environmental education, and youth experience; and the agencies/schools provide the youth participants.
