Hike It Up
Hike It Up brings community members together to improve adverse conditions that negatively impact the future. Â Every person is an important part of the change we are all looking for; even those we help have the ability to help others when ready. Â We are the domino to set off the effect.Â
Our work/mission is to assist in creating a systemic change in the SF East Bay of Northern California which meets environmental, social, and sustainability needs by addressing those areas upon which survival is dependent, specifically food, energy, transportation,Â shelter and social inclusion.Â We focus on low-income, high crime areas, but are not necessarily limited thereto.Â We approach these areas as part of an integrated larger area where coming together to make a systemic change can effect greater well-being for all members of the community.

We are committed to involve the spectrum of diverse and multi-abled voices in our play selection, our programs and internships, in our artistic, production and volunteer staffs, and in our audience.
