This event will benefit the IRC’s new climbing mentorship program for refugee teens, offered in partnership with Vertical Generation. Through weekly visits to the climbing gym, students practice English language skills, get help with homework, and learn to rock climb with the support of a volunteer mentor. Participate in the climb-a-thon to help keep this awesome program going for another year!
Check out footage from the first year of the mentorship program:
