Youth Programs

Sky Program

In 2000 the Pacific Northwest Trail Association started the Service Knowledge Youth (SKY) Program. SKY works with youth ages 14 – 18 from local alternative schools that specialize in reaching students who are struggling socially, economically, or academically.  Participants achieve personal growth, learn teamwork and goal setting, Wilderness Stewardship and Leave-No-Trace Ethics, and reap the rewards of personal and group accomplishments.  The SKY Programs are a blend of paid employment and volunteer community service experience!  The SKY Program is also part of the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, a federal program though the Departments of Agriculture and Interior.
