City Kids Wilderness Project is a non-profit youth development organization.

City Kids Wilderness Project is a non-profit organization founded on the belief that providing enriching life experiences for underserved and at-risk D.C. children can enhance their lives, the lives of their family and the greater community.

City Kids uses outdoor and enrichment activities as a platform to build self-confidence, improve academic performance and develop leadership skills. Youth enter the program as sixth graders, either through the City Kids Afterschool Program or through a recommendation from a City Kids partner organization. Once enrolled in the program, a student will be invited to continue with City Kids Wilderness Project through four years of school year and summer camp programming, and four or more years as a part of the Internship & Transition Program where they will gain access to summer internships, post-secondary educational and career support, as well as alumni services.

Once summer arrives, City Kids head to Broken Arrow Ranch in Jackson, Wyoming. The younger participants will work their way up from Rangers to Mountaineers, to Elite and then Leadership teams, assuming increased responsibility and challenges with each new level. These increased responsibilities are reinforced throughout the school year while in DC. As City Kids youth mature, they are placed in an internship where they can demonstrate their leadership and academic skills while building skills for their professional future. All enrollment, school-year, and summer activities are always provided at no cost to students or their families.
