Alpenglow Sports Tailgate Talk
November 1, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
From Alpenglow Sports….
“We’re excited to continue our annual fall in-house adventure series, coined the “Tailgate Talks.”
Each show focuses on adventure, travel and mountain exploration. The Tailgate Talks are communal in nature, designed to provide a fun, educational and inspiring outlet for the North Lake Tahoe adventure community. Shows are either free or $5 and all beer proceeds go to a local non-profit.
Alpenglow Sports and Adventure Risk Challenge (ARC), an outdoor youth development non-profit, invite you to the 2nd annual Voices of Youth, Now and Beyond on Thursday, November 1st. ARC youth participants and alumni will read inspired poetry, share stories from their lives, and provide insights from ARC’s wilderness programs. The evening will begin at 6:30PM at Alpenglow Sports in Tahoe City, California.
ARC’s mission is to empower underserved youth through integrated literacy and wilderness experiences. ARC facilitates 40-day and 25-day summer immersion courses for high school-aged youth in Tahoe, Yosemite, and Sequoia & Kings Canyon. In these beautiful natural settings, students learn wilderness skills, write personal, reflective essays and poems, and experience dramatic shifts in the trajectory of their lives.
Voices of Youth, Now and Beyond is your opportunity to hear these courageous students share their stories. You will be impressed by the students’ poise and vulnerability. You will be inspired by ARC alumni describing how their wilderness experiences transformed their lives. And you will grow to appreciate ARC’s unique combination of wilderness and literacy instruction in the outdoors.

This year ARC celebrated its 15th summer facilitating courses at UC Berkeley’s Sagehen Creek Field Station. Since 2004, the organization has provided over 5,200 student-days and over 62,000 student-hours of summer literacy and leadership instruction in Tahoe/Truckee. Each year over 100 Tahoe/Truckee youth are engaged in ARC’s year-round programs. Katie Zanto, ARC’s founder, will introduce the students at Voices of Youth, Now and Beyond and will share her inspiration for the creation of the program.
ARC youth receive full scholarships for their participation in summer and weekend programming. ARC relies on a combination of individual donations and grant funding to support its programming. Voices of Youth, Now and Beyond will give you the opportunity to make a financial donation and/or a donation of gently-used outdoor equipment and apparel. Please attend with the intention of supporting ARC through a contribution. Complimentary drinks and appetizers provided by Za’s Lakefront in Tahoe City will be served at 6:30 and ARC youth will share their stories starting at 7:30. If you cannot attend, donations can be made at www.adventureriskchallenge.org/donate-now.
