Document Description
Notice of exemption for Coastal Conservancy approval of grant funding. YMAN’s Pathway to Our Coasts is a 24-month project dedicated to creating enjoyable and engaging beach and coast-based experiences for approximately 240 youth from low-income families in the Pomona Valley-Inland Empire region of California. By changing the narrative of coastal access for youth of color; reducing economic and transportation challenges in getting to the beach; and developing engaging activities such as swimming, kayaking, and coastal botanical tours, this project aims to foster a deeper sense of belonging among youth to California’s coast that will fuel the desire and eagerness to return again and again.
