At Sierra Nevada Journeys, we specialize in “aha” moments where the lights come on and everything is boldly and brightly illuminated and the world suddenly makes perfect sense. These moments of awakening, self-discovery and joy revolutionize young lives. They remove barriers and open the door to untold possibilities for a student. At Sierra Nevada Journeys, “aha” moments are the reason we exist. As an outdoor science education nonprofit, we’ve helped more than 200,000 children to explore Nature through science, and fuel their own unique connections and discoveries. Most students we serve come from high-need communities across Northern Nevada and Northern California. In fact, 61 percent of our students are children of color and over half the kids we serve come from low-income families. Our mission is to deliver innovative outdoor, science-based programs for youth to foster our next generation of our community’s leaders, scientists, and stewards.
