One of our goals with Hoods to Woods is to build awareness of the great outdoors inner city youth combined with environmental responsibility. Here is a great example of how we can begin to make a impact on the environment. Not the answer, but we can all pitch in by doing something so basic that we over look every day!

We started our first Snowboard program four years ago before we became an official non profit at Mt. Creek, NJ. See what a day on the mountain is like with our teens. Learning to overcome challenges & fears.
Part of our media and design programs are to encourage our youth to create product with outdoor and apparel companies. We partnered with Flat Fitty to create a limited edition cap.
Last year we partnered with Open Road to build a mini ramp in the lower
east side at the 12th and Ave. A skatepark. It was a two day project where
our teens were instructed on how to build a mini ramp. We would like to
thank Lifeandtimes.com and everyone who participated in helping construct
the ramp. The result was a success and brought many smiles to the kids in
