Want to help create a better world?  We thought so!

Through the Youth Engagement Program, high school-aged youth utilize their strengths to identify and address the unique conservation needs within their community.  YEP teams develop projects that inspire others to take action for a better world. 

The 2017 – 2018 YEP program will launch this fall.  Check back for more details soon!

Highlights of the program include:

  • Monthly meet-ups at Como with sneak peeks and program perks that only Como can offer
    • Field trips to fun destinations that support conservation and sustainable practices
    • The opportunity to meet with Como staff to learn about global and local conservation programs
    • Project support throughout the school year
    • Micro grants to fund conservation projects
    • Volunteer hours
    • Connections with fellow youth who share your passion to create change
