Backyard Bound I-YEL Project
By youth in the Inspiring Young Emerging Leaders program
I-YEL spent six months planning for their Backyard Bound YEL project. I-YELer's welcomed six Bay Area youth group's to come and express themselves at this year's youth summit at Rob Hill campground in the Presidio of San Francisco. Interns focused on a theme around “zero waste” which included: not wasting your individuality, voice, or natural resources. This was a chance for Bay Area youth to meet and collaborate with each other outside of city life and in their national parks.
