Outdoors and Mentor is one our mentorship day that provides young individuals the opportunity to explore the outdoor world and bond with professionals as mentors in their field of interest.
Among the organizations we have been able to give back through Ourdoors and Mentors is Miracles Outreach, a non-profit that works to restore our community by empowering program participants and/or residents to become self-sufficient – economically, emotionally and spiritually.
The organization provides safe, secure, nurturing environments for the educational development of at-risk youth, reducing the risk factors that lead to juvenile delinquency (Miraclesoutreach.org, 2008).

Education is a pertinent tool to success, however, the cost of education can be a hinderance to many achieving that level of success they desire in life.
While aboard the Escapades ship at our "June Cruise:Pon The Replay" event on June 15th, 2013, members not only came out to have a great time with other local professionals but they also supported a greater cause-giving back to society.
Tash Johnson & Co. was able to raise a total of $206 US dollars for Merl Grove High School after raffling off fantastic prizes to members for $1 raffle tickets.
Some of the prizes included:
1hr horseback riding session at Gus Trent Ranch
1 box of handmade artisian European chocolate from Viktoria Richards
$100 worth of detox body wrap system from Skinny South Florida
1 free ticket to "Jazz in July 2013"
While the winners of these fabulous prizes were extremely grateful, the school administration upon receiving the donation was even more grateful. Presented to the school on June 29th, the school officials agreed to utilize the funds to go towards assisting the members of the school's quiz team in affording their lunch and transportation for training.
We are pleased to say that with the help of our members and other contributing parties, the team not only completed quiz training but have had a successful start in the competition, winning their first official match.
Congratulations Merl Grove!!!

HELP Jamaica! Education Center in Cassava Piece" is a non-profit organization located in Kingston, Jamaica that serves to aid inner-city children with essential resources to enhance their literacy. Some these include school supplies, access to computers, library workshops, as well as free tutoring sessions and homework assistance.
Founder of Tash Johnson &Co., Tashima Johnson had unique opportunity to visit one of the locations for HELP Jamaica to entertain the kids to a fun, educational, and interactive evening of much laughter and of course,learning.
Jamaica, as many are aware is the home to incredbile world record holders, but if it weren't for the encouragement of people like yourselves that pushed them from a tender age to try, then many of these accomplishments in music, art, sport, academia, and dance may not have been achieved. HELP Jamaica! Education Center is working very hard at helping these children to realize that dream. With your help, they can do more!

The Founder of Tash Johnson & Co, Tashima Johnson is an avid community advocate. Her passion is in seeing people happy and by no means is this limited to putting on festive events.

In 2009, herself and a group of colleagues started a give back initiative called "RISE: Resisting Indifference, Supporting Each Other". Today, she continues to do so helping to see others rise!
