2021 marked the 21st full year of operations by the Outdoor Foundation. Since our launch of the Thrive Outside Community Initiative in 2019, we have connected 49,855 youth and their families to the joy, wonder, and myriad benefits of the outdoors. Despite the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19, we made tremendous progress last year in building the Thrive Outside Network throughout the country, reaching a total of 14,849 youth in our eight communities of focus. As you read this report, you’ll see evidence of the transformational impact our network delivers, insights from our 2021 research reports, and success stories from our partners across the country.
