The LINC School-Year Program aims to create a strong community of youth park stewards through habitat restoration projects, team-building experiences, and exciting adventures throughout the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. By forming relationships with existing High School clubs and working together to protect, restore, and enjoy their natural spaces we hope to inspire young people to become leaders through both service and adventure.
Who is eligible?
Participation is open to Bay Area high school clubs and organizations who are interested in environmental service work and outdoor adventure. If you would like to have your high school club or organization become a part of the LINC school year program, please contact David Pon firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do we do?
The LINC School-Year Program aims to offer at least one youth only outing a month, often on Saturdays or school holidays. These outings could range anywhere from habitat restoration to overnight snow trips to outdoor barbeque's.
How do I get there?
Most of the sites we work and play in are located in San Francisco and easily accessible by public transportation. We have some ability to provide carpools from Fort Mason or Civic Center BART station; however, seating is limited so we will have a first-come first-serve style sign up for each trip. We encourage groups to ride public transportation together or arrange their own carpools as often as possible.
