YAC workshop! 4:00PM-6:00PM
The Youth Action Corps (YAC) is a creative youth leadership program for high school and early college aged youth. YAC members work together to support Ironwood Tree Experience by providing a youth voice and leadership for programs and events. YAC members ensure that Ironwood Tree Experience programs are superlative, meet youth’s interests and wellbeing, and provide awesome YAC activities that lift spirits and build skills!
YAC teens embrace their love of nature, people, and community by engaging in activities, intititives, interships and program in four spheres of stewardship such as Conservation & Restoration, Environmental Educational, Sustainable Community Development, and Eco Entrepreneurship!
High school and college age youth who have participated in previous ITE EcoPrograms and interships are automatically a YAC member. All YAC members are encouraged to participate in monthly YAC workshops at the Ironwood Tree Experience – Urban Field Station where young people meet friends, share stories, and become part of YAC committees that are making a difference in the community.
