Kicking Bear 1-on-1
Kicking Bear is a nationwide mentoring program which introduces disadvantaged children to the great outdoors. Kicking Bear is a national organization with 501(c)3 status, dedicated to enriching the lives of troubled and at risk youth through outdoor experiences.
This includes but is not limited to the following:
- Raising awareness about the significant number of young people who need a mentor.
- Organizing public events which have a positive impact on the young people who need it the most.
- Providing a point of contact for both mentors and the young people desiring a mentor.
- Teaching proven tips and techniques to aspiring mentors.
Kicking Bear encourages mentors to get involved with today's youth, especially the underprivileged, who have not been introduced to the outdoors.
By reaching outside their homes, mentors can become positive role models and put dreams and successes in the hearts and minds of our youth, changing their lives and the lives of their families.

Famous quotes containing the words kicking and/or bear:
“I hate the actor and audience business. An author should be in among the crowd, kicking their shins or cheering them on to some mischief or merriment.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“They mustnt know my despair, I cant let them see the wounds which they have caused, I couldnt bear their sympathy and their kind-hearted jokes, it would only make me want to scream all the more. If I talk, everyone thinks Im showing off; when Im silent they think Im ridiculous; rude if I answer, sly if I get a good idea, lazy if Im tired, selfish if I eat a mouthful more than I should, stupid, cowardly, crafty, etc. etc.”
—Anne Frank (19291945)
