youth engagement initiative

The Youth Engagement Initiative is built around four important pillars that connect the next generation to the outdoors through a variety of experiences. These programs systematically introduce Grand Teton to a younger, more diverse audience and offer escalating educational and employment opportunities that will keep participants actively involved in wilderness until they make career decisions.
