Youth Connecting Youth to Their National Park

Share

Getting ready for its second year, Backyard Bound is a youth-led summit consisting of workshops, outdoor experiences, and discussions centered on connecting youth to their environment.

The Center’s Inspiring Young Emerging Leaders (I-YEL) program takes the lead for this two day, overnight event held at the Rob Hill Campground in the Presidio.

With almost a dozen organizations and over 100 students signed up to participate, this year is sure to be a catalyst to get youth connected—not only to the outdoors but to organizations in their communities that promote environmental and social justice topics.

To see what Backyard Bound is all about, take a look at the video below from their first Backyard Bound summit in 2011:
