GreenPlay Youth Leaders Program


4 Sessions - Thursdays, May 3, 10, & 17, 2018 4:30-7:00PM (includes dinner) at Blackie's Pasture and Sunday, May 20, 2018 9:00-1:30PM (bring your lunch) at Tennessee Valley.  Limited to 10 Participants.  $400 enrollment fee

The GreenPlay Youth Leaders Program for 2018 is enrolling now.  Sign up here.

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 Nature Guides with Marin GreenPlay Summer Camp sessions during the Summer of 2018.  Our Youth Leaders will also receive a certificate noting their volunteer hours for use in school service recognition, etc.  Youth Leaders from prior years are invited to return summer after summer after completing the Sunday refresher session.

Fees for this program are fully refundable if you cancel 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 2017 Youth Leaders!
