Rising Leaders Fellowship


Now in it's third year, the Rising Leaders Fellowship supports the professional development of individuals in entry to mid-level positions within youth serving outdoor programs. Specifically, Youth Outside targets individuals who are enthusiastic about connecting youth to the outdoors in culturally relevant and inclusive ways by affecting culture change within their organizations. The Rising Leaders Fellowship builds professional capacity while creating a supportive network of like-minded leaders through a project based cohort series that focuses on social justice and equity in the outdoors. Please find an informational sheet here for more details.
