Who, What & Why--
Our Emerging Leaders program offers teens, ages 13-18, a comprehensive curriculum to develop the next generation of leaders and stewards. Our innovative program provides plenty of hands-on experiences and supports teens as they build a wide-range of ecological, creative, social and civic skills. They also perform community service projects that are essential tools for empowering teens to become active agents of change in their community.

Our goal is to develop confident and civic-minded teens that are able to give purpose and direction to their lives.
