Youth and Not-in-School Programs

Aud_ec 004_frShannon19apr11Our vision is to help San Diego’s youth program providers integrate nature programming into their numerous programs. This includes youth programs (Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, camps, faith-based youth groups) and not-in-school programs (after-school, extended day care, summer programs, clubs, alternative youth services).
