Howard School & Youth Highlights

vounteer group

The development of the Howard School partnership began in 2012 and has grown from five students to eighteen. We are ready to expand it to 30 students as soon as funding becomes available.

A new model for conservation

What began as a few students helping with trail development over a Christmas break has  become a model of how conservation can be used as a tool to develop youth leadership, enhance academic and social skills, and provide job skills training.

From high school to college

Through conservation activities and one-on-one team mentoring, the primary goal of the Intern and Leadership Program is to ensure that all participating students graduate from high school and attend either a university, a technical institute, or are placed in a job.

You can change lives

You can contribute monthly, a couple times a year, or help sponsor a student. Regardless you will be helping to change their life. For many it’s their last chance at an education and a new path for success.
