Youth Leadership Adventures Day Programming 2020

WHO: High Schoolers 9th-12th grade (6-8 students & 2 instructors per session)

WHAT: Hybrid Day / Take Home Program

Due to Skagit & Whatcom counties remaining paused in Phase 2, we have transitioned our program plan. We will meet in person for 1 day (Kayak Day), meet online on the first and last day, and spend the rest of the week completing at home activities encouraging going outside and activities reflecting on climate change, stewardship and leadership.  Materials will be delivered to your house and there will be opportunities to share via social media with the rest of your group throughout the week.  

WHY:

    • Explore and build connection to outdoor spaces in local counties
    • Investigate different perspectives and community impacts of climate change
    • Learn how leadership and stewardship intersect in taking action 
    • Get to know peers from local communities
    • Kayak on local bodies of water

COST: FREE to students thanks to generous support from individuals and a Washington State No Child Left Inside grant.
