Looking to the Future: BLM Youth Initiatives

Looking to the future, BLM’s youth initiatives feature a variety of programs that engage, educate, and inspire. Focusing on youth from early childhood through young adulthood, BLM youth programs build on the spark of childhood wonder about the natural world, sustain interest through hands-on education and volunteer experiences during the school-age years, and develop into long-term engagement and stewardship, as well as pursuit of natural resource careers.
