Hoods to Woods

So many children growing up in urban areas have rarely had the opportunity to travel outside of their immediate surroundings or have unfamiliar life experiences. Hoods to Woods is a unique foundation that gives youth, ages 11 to 17, the ability to partake in activities such as hiking, indoor rock climbing, snowboarding, camping and more.  Since starting out as a documentary, featuring the founder, Brian “Deka” PauPaw, Hoods to Woods has grown to a foundation that uniquely enriches children’s lives.  Their work has been featured in Black EnterpriseNY Daily News and also Jay-Z’s Life and Times.
