Youth Action Corps Workshop – Tuesday, November 14, 2017 4:15-6PM
The Youth Action Corps (YAC) is a creative youth leadership program for high school and early college aged teens. 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 unique stewardship activities such as wildlife conservation and environmental restoration projects, leading environmental educational programs, working in the community for sustainable community development projects, and even applying entrepreneurial skills within the realm of Eco Economics!
High school and college age youth who have participated in an ITE EcoProgram or Community Action program are automatically a YAC member. All YAC members are encouraged to participate in 1 YAC workshop each month at the Ironwood Tree Experience – Urban Field Station where you make new friends, share stories, and become part of YAC committees that are making a difference in the community.
