Youth Connect Trails participants engage in service learning projects, gaining outdoor skills and stewardship, confidence, increased self-esteem, and enhanced communication skills. They reflect on personal and group growth and learning during the day. Service learning projects are all located outdoors, primarily working with partner organizations in maintaining and establishing trails.
The group will meet on Wednesdays starting February 2, with the last program day on April 6. This Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute program is open to youth in grades 5–12. Pay as you can. Program registration fees support transportation costs and future SOEI Youth Program opportunities.
