At Stormtech, we believe that an active, outdoor lifestyle can inspire, motivate and change lives. Through the 1:1 Initiative, Stormtech donates much needed outdoor apparel to our partner organizations, to introduce at-risk youth to outdoor adventure.
Stormtech wants everyone to experience their love of the outdoors. This is why, Stormtech will be donating 1% of its total global sales, in the form of much needed apparel to partner organizations.
Born in the Lower East Side of Vancouver, BC in 2013 with the idea of giving disadvantaged youth an opportunity to explore the world. This 10-year project will have cohorts of 15 youth train year-round in preparation for five major international explorations on five different continents.
“Stormtech and Street2Peak have formed an amazing East Van partnership. When Street2Peak was getting outfitted for our Kilimanjaro expedition, Stormtech was the first sponsor to step up and offer these kids the technical gear needed for such an adventure. Ever since then, Stormtech has provided any clothing items we’ve needed - from rain pants, to waterproof shells, thermal hats to gloves. They treat our students like their most valued customers. For those in the know, if you don’t have the gear, you’re hooped. Stormtech has always had our backs.”
Take a Hike is a full-time alternate education program that engages vulnerable youth ages 15-18 through a combination of academics, therapy, adventure-based learning and community involvement in British Columbia.
Students in the program often struggle with issues that have inhibited their success such as drug and alcohol addiction, physical and mental abuse, criminal activity, low self-esteem, depression, and/or trauma.
The program's goals are to minimize barriers to learning, address personal issues, and help students achieve greater social and academic success.
“Being able to provide clothing and gear to our youth is an integral part of our success. We want to show them care, respect, and commitment to their well-being. Partnering with Stormtech, allows us to take our students on incredible journeys, where we can focus on learning and personal growth, while providing high-quality gear that they feel comfortable in.”
