YMCA BOLD Mountain School

Updated: November 1, 2011

Boys Outdoor Leadership Development (BOLD) is an outdoor education program of the Metrocenter YMCA that develops multi-cultural leadership skills in young men through wilderness experience.  Our 5 to 16 day backpacking, rock climbing, and mountaineering expeditions provide an opportunity for young men from different economic, ethnic, religious and social backgrounds to build multi-cultural leadership, communication, and decision making skills through shared challenges, problem solving, and fun.  We believe that BOLD addresses a need in our community for:

  • Emotionally intelligent programming for boys.
  • An authentic and celebrated rite of passage event from adolescence to man hood.
  •  An emotionally and physically safe place where boys from different backgrounds can gather.
  • Opportunities to develop the multi-cultural leadership and communication skills needed to be successful in an increasingly globalized world. 
  • A place where boys can find glory, be of service, be allies to others and feel needed. 
  • Affordable Outdoor Education.

The BOLD Vision: To create a world where young men have the emotional intelligence, courage, and compassion to be positive multi-cultural leaders in their communities.

The BOLD Mission: To use wilderness experience and challenge to create emotionally and physically safe spaces where boys from different backgrounds can communicate and develop to their fullest leadership potential.
