Walk for The Woods Project – Volunteers Needed

The Woods Project is hosting our 12th annual Walk for The Woods Project event, presented by ENGIE, on Saturday, November 4, 2023 at BakerRipley- Ripley House.

The Walk is our largest fundraiser of the year and will help us provide life-changing leadership development opportunities to even more Houston high school students from low-income communities. Nearly 200 students are expected to participate in our 2-week wilderness immersion program in summer 2024!

This event would not be possible without the help of our wonderful volunteers. Many volunteer roles are available. Grab your friends, family, and social groups to volunteer with us to help create another successful Walk for The Woods Project.
