OEI 2020 Cohorts

The Outdoor Educators Institute (OEI) is a three-month long professional development program for young adults with an active interest in outdoor leadership. OEI graduates receive training in wilderness backpacking, sea kayaking, rock climbing, outdoor facilitation, group management, and conservation skills, and are supported to get placed in outdoor employment at the end of the program. This year, Youth Outside is leading three separate OEI cohorts; one in the San Francisco/Oakland region, one in the South Bay, and, for the first time, one in Fresno!

We are proud to introduce the members of the 2020 Outdoor Educators Institute cohorts.
