Our mission is to increase the participation and presence of women in outdoor activities. Through the mentorship and coaching of professional and recreational outdoor athletes we will empower women of all ages and children to realize their potential in outdoor sports and beyond.
Our vision is to grow support of environmental awareness, recognition of the fundamental importance of fitness and creating the inspiration needed for our members to “jump” to reach their potential. SheJumps invites all women and children to participate in the celebration of the outdoors through organic involvement of mountain cultures around the world.
