Fund A Student
High school students participating in LEAF are divided into groups of three and paired with mentors for a four-week field session in July. Many of these urban teens have never spent extended time in nature or explored colleges outside of the city. For most, the program also marks their first paid job experience. The students develop critical life and workplace skills while living away from friends and family. They participate in demanding field work, manage finances and budgets, and do their own cooking and cleaning.
Your gift could fund a student through the LEAF program.
