Urban Forest University
The Urban Forest University is dedicated for our teens ages 14 to 18 years old. This program not allow centers around outdoor education and recreation, but it is intentionally designed to teach our youth leadership skills as they are the owners of their program, and the organization is there to support their efforts. Teens get to choose the types of activities and volunteer work they are interested in and they manage it from beginning to end.
The outdoors serves as the campus for our University students, and they are taught how to apply the skills they learn in school, work, and future careers. We also help the youth explore various careers in the outdoors. This program also provides our teens with the opportunity to meet other teens and learn how to work together incorporating teamwork, problem solving skills, and project managing their events.
We are always looking to collaborate with other organizations and entities that want to offer valuable learning experiences to our teens.
