Group Field Trips

  • Angel Island
    Explore the outdoors with your mentoring group! San Francisco Police Department leads ten backpacking trips on Angel Island throughout the year. On these backpacking trips, mentors and mentees get a chance to challenge themselves, develop their leadership, communication, and teamwork skills, and have fun in nature!
  • Pacific Leadership Institute
    Pacific Leadership Institute offers a number of Challenge Courses (or ropes courses) throughout the year. Challenge Courses are a progression of low team-based elements and high challenge elements built in the trees using cables, ladders and ropes. Foster a community spirit within your mentoring group by going to the Challenge Course together!
  • Trips for Kids
    Trips For Kids (TFK) Marin takes at-risk kids on scenic day-long mountain biking adventures in gorgeous Marin County where they learn bike skills, self-confidence, and environmental awareness. Most of all, TFK rides provide an unstructured opportunity for youth to have fun!
