Calling all students ages 14-22 involved in youth stewardship, outdoor leadership, or environmental education programs in the PNW. You're invited to a FREE, fun, and inspiring event: The Northwest Youth Leadership Summit!

Hosted by The Mountaineers, North Cascades Institute, Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Service, and North Cascades National Park, the Northwest Youth Leadership Summit seeks to empower our region's Future Leaders in Conservation.


What is the NW youth Leadership Summit?

At the Summit, we'll celebrate and inspire diverse youth leaders from our region. You'll receive leadership training and workforce development opportunities to help equip you to take action as a steward of your environment and community. Skill building sessions, presentations from student peers, outdoor adventures are all included. Plus, it'll be fun!

You'll also have the opportunity to meet professionals from the National Park and Forest Services, Student Conservation Association, Washington Conservation Corps, and others about jobs, internships, and outdoor opportunities.

The event also includes a light breakfast, lunch, raffle prizes, and lots of fun (just like in the photo below minus the mountain climb)!
