The Bronze Values

WE’RE KIND, ENCOURAGING AND OPTIMISTIC

The Bronze Chapter provides places and spaces for people of color to joyfully learn outdoor skills, adventure, explore, and discover the natural world. We acknowledge and respect our various learning styles, show each other patience, and help each other overcome challenges.

WE’RE GRATEFUL

We’re grateful for opportunities to rewrite our outdoor narratives together. We cheerfully share our knowledge and skills and plant seeds that can help each other learn and grow.

WE’RE RESPECTFUL AND SAFE

We behave respectfully towards each other. Any form of harassment, bullying or abuse (physical, verbal, or online) is a hard no.

We behave respectfully towards animals and wildlife. Chasing or harming animals in any way is a hard no. 

We behave respectfully towards nature. We learn and practice the mindset of Leave No Trace and remain mindful of how our footprints affect the environment.

WE TAKE CARE

We take care of ourselves and look out for the well-being of one another.
