Rising Leaders Fellowship 2020 Cohort

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 effecting 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.

We are proud to introduce the members of the 2020 Rising Leaders Fellowship!
