BCM is the country’s leading volunteer organization devoted to providing significant mentoring during wilderness trips for urban teens participating in existing youth development programs. BCM was created to offer under resourced teenagers participating in existing youth development programs a dramatic learning experience. The BCM program is an eight-day trip, the focus of which is a five-day backcountry backpacking or canoeing experience during which 5 teens are matched with 5 volunteer adult role models. While immersed in a pristine wilderness in the company of caring adults, the teens progress along an emotional journey that leaves many transformed and with a greater sense of self.
