"Great Oaks from small acorns grow"

Greening Youth Foundation needs your help! As you may already know, our mission is to work with diverse, underserved and underrepresented children, youth and young adults in an effort to develop and nurture enthusiastic and responsible environmental stewards.

This work cannot be done without people like you and your support. There are many young people of color who will never have an opportunity to do many of the things we often take for granted; activities like hiking, fishing, and camping are often times out of reach. We strive to instill a deep level appreciation, a desire to engage, and willingness to steward and protect our natural environment in these young adults. However, if they never have an opportunity to be immersed in it, how will they feel the need to protect it? Your gift will assist us in furthering our work in reaching these young people of color and engaging them in the active and hands-on experiences of the great outdoors.
