Content is anchored by their experiences at a weeklong camp (held this past August) and in regional parks, hatcheries, gardens, farm markets, and water and waste facilities. They are introduced to youth leaders, Youth-4-Action Alumni and school district youth leadership supporters.</p><p>Each student develops a project challenging them to influence sustainability in their school.
