Our Mission

Urban Peaks promotes the positive and life-altering benefits of rock climbing- and adventure-based activities to disadvantaged, underrepresented youth.

We believe that participation in climbing and other adventure activities will provide potentially life-changing benefits and character building opportunities, promoting greater self-esteem development. Additionally, involvement in physical activities like rock climbing enables a healthy lifestyle and improves fitness in a supportive environment.

We are focused on fulfilling this mission throughout all of New England. UP will provide financial support and program assistance for organizations serving underrepresented youth through climbing and adventure sports. UP will facilitate access to activities that expose under-served audiences to indoor and outdoor rock climbing programs and adventure-challenge facilities.

Update! Urban Peaks has been named a recipient of the Eastern Outdoor Reps Association (EORA) Grant for 2017! This grant funding will be used to bring climbing and adventure-based activities to even more youth who otherwise would not be able to access this life-changing programming. Big thanks to EORA!
