The Youth Environmental Leadership Institute leads educational trips with groups of young people.
The youth leadership groups learn first-hand about the relationship between individual behavior, community health and environmental sustainability, gaining hands-on experience by staying in an eco-friendly lodge, surrounded by rainforest and Hidden Garden’s Ethnobotanical Sanctuary. Cultural exchanges with local youth groups, wilderness challenges, organic meals and daily wellness practices help open the minds and hearts of participants. It is a magical opportunity to grow and manifest the true adult self emerging. Through collaboration with trip leaders, we customize group experiences, always ensuring that young people are able to bring back a newfound sense of commitment to environmental sustainability and their own personal development.
