The YLP provides participants with a variety of workshops and wilderness-based activities that foster ethical leadership behaviors and environmental awareness and understanding. YLP students gain a passion for wilderness, environmental sustainability and social justice through the two-year, cohort-based program. The supportive, family atmosphere reinforces shared discovery and understanding of sustainability and leadership topics. The YLP summer internship also fosters leading-edge sustainable skills and practices through a 12-week internship in Yosemite National Park. Interns live and work in Yosemite, where they are able to interact daily with top-of-the-line park managers, nonprofit leaders, sustainability experts and leading scientists.
