The key to a perfectly gooey s’more is all in how you toast the marshmallow. For best results, position yours an inch or so above the flames.

Volunteer Information Sessions

The first step to becoming a mentor with Big City Mountaineers is to attend a New Volunteer Information Session.

All NEW volunteers must reside within 200 miles of Denver, Oakland, Seattle, Minneapolis, or Madison.This policy was created to improve the quality of the experience for the teens we serve by giving them easier access to volunteers who have more direct training and who can participate in local events and activities more frequently. Please click here for the complete Volunteer Job Description.
