GreenPlay Youth Leaders is a training program equipping middle school and high school students with skills that will last a lifetime and propel them to the next level of self-development.   Meeting during four sessions prior to the summer, participants will learn the basics of nature awareness, leadership, teamwork, group facilitation and communication, one-on-one connections, first aid practices, and other skills that will transfer to any small group environment.

Wendy Dalia, former Director of Conservation and Education at the Richardson Bay Audubon Center, will teach this training program.

Successful completion of the GreenPlay Youth Leaders Program entitles participants to earn a generous weekly stipend assisting our adult Guides with Marin GreenPlay Summer Camp sessions during the Summer of 2017.  Our Youth Leaders will also receive a certificate noting their volunteer hours for use in school service recognition, etc.

Fees for this program are fully refundable if you cancel the program in writing more than thirty (30) days before the program starts.  We will fully refund all fees paid toward any program that we cancel due to lack of enrollment, weather conditions, etc. 


Congratulations to our 2016 Youth Leaders!
