Youth Leadership Adventures 2015

North Cascades Institute is excited to announce that Youth Leadership Adventures are now accepting applications for Summer 2015!

This unique program features a range of summer opportunities for high school-aged students ages 14-18 on local public lands. During 8- and 16-day summer expeditions, students canoe, camp, backpack and complete service projects in the North Cascades backcountry - including Ross, Diablo and Baker Lakes - while receiving hands-on training in outdoor leadership, field science, communication skills and public speaking.

This partnership program with North Cascades National Park and Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest connects youth to wild places while instilling a sense of responsibility and ownership so they can make a difference in their home communities. Participants will make new friends, gain confidence and leadership skills, enhance their resume and college applications, earn community service hours, and explore the North Cascades wilderness, all while having the best summer of their life!
