Podcast #14-18 Outdoor Immersion- Jim Skal



Jim Skal (in his own words): Basically grew up playing outside.  Moved to New Hampshire in 1985 where I made a decision to follow Jesus and ran up and down mountains for the time I was there.  Eventually moved back to Butler, met my wife at North Way Christian Community, raised four kids together as I built a successful mortgage career.

2010 was a year of the developing vision of Outdoor Immersion and serving veterans, people in recovery and at-risk youth in outdoor adventure, recreation and fitness. The work has grown to the point where I ended my mortgage career and started full time operations January 2018 as 501c3 non-profit organization.

Podcast #13-18 Trash to Thrash- Jason McKoy & Nick Miller



Trash to Thrash (TtT) (in their own words) collects used, slightly abused, and sometimes new skateboard parts donated from local skaters and skate shops. We take those parts and make complete skateboard decks that we give to the youth to skate on after teaching them the fundamentals of skating at community sponsored Skate Jams and workshops. At the end of the day, every kid walks off with a fresh deck, vigor and vim to keep active with their new hobby.

We interviewed Jason McKoy and Nick Miller, Co-Founders of Trash to Thrash.  To learn more about Trash to Thrash, Nick Miller, and Jason McKoy, connect with them using the links below.
