This contribution honors the innovative programs getting youth moving and into the wilderness in collaboration with the LA Unified School District and the Los Angeles Police Department.

About Medicines Global Outdoor Youth Ambassador (MGOYA) Programs - MGOYA has collaborated with the Los Angeles Police Department with ‘GET kids MOVING’ programs. MGOYA’s local law enforcement collaboration will serve as a prototype for other programs, throughout the city, as a model for police, sheriff, firemen and the like, working with local community schools to get youth involved in the outdoors. Since 2004, MGOYA has provided more than 900 Los Angeles students with wilderness experiences.

“It is not everyday when a program like Medicines Global Outdoor Youth Ambassadors comes along. In fact it is very, very rare for our students to be given opportunities like this. We are so fortunate to have Johanna and Janice Belson and Medicines Global working with San Pedro High School. It is life changing for our students to have a chance to get out of the city and touch our mountains and oceans. I know each and every Outdoor Youth Ambassador will never forget the experiences that Medicines Global is providing.” ~ Sandy Martin-Alvarenga, San Pedro High School Magnet Coordinator, Math & Marine Science/Technology Magnet - Police Academy Magnet

MGOYA has been able to advance programs exponentially with the support of matching funds and in kind support from: The North Face, GoPro, RedWing/VASQUE, adidas OUTDOOR, GoPro, Red Wing/VASQUE, Adventure 16, Trader Joe’s, AVON RENT-A-CAR-TRUCK-VAN, Atmosphere Alt, Warner Music Group, Whole Foods Market, LEKI USA, Big Agnes, HORNY TOAD, Eagle Creek, ACORN Shoes, erewhon Natural Foods Market, LAPD and generous anonymous donors.

Grants like the recent Adventure 16/Outdoor Nation, TNF Planet Explore Fund & future corporate giving will allow our programs to continue. http://www.medicinesglobal.org/donations_paypal.htm

Medicines Global is the parent organization for the Medicines Global Outdoor Youth Ambassador program (MGOYA). Created in 2004, MGOYA works domestically creating opportunities to ‘Get kids Moving’. MGOYA ‘Get kids Moving’ outdoor adventures include: hiking, climbing, camping, sea kayaking, surfing and stand up paddle boarding. All programs have a strong creative component, focusing on photography and video as a means of self-expression. MGOYA offers trips to photo museums, screenings of documentaries and runs photo contests to encourage the outdoor youth ambassadors to creatively share their experiences and knowledge gained in the wilds. Winners of the photo contests have traveled on Medicines Global humanitarian adventures to Sri Lanka, Nepal, Guatemala and El Salvador.
