The mission of IYWI is to create opportunities for Idaho youth to experience overnight wilderness adventures by breaking down barriers to access. In doing so, the organization will provide comprehensive, hands-on training for adult youth leaders and educators. Once they have completed the training, these leaders will have access to a FREE gear library which will allow them to properly outfit their trips, leading kids into Idaho’s remarkable wilderness both confidently and competently.
Our first Youth Leadership Training went down successfully and we have some amazing HD photos to prove it. We are excited to see what these ‘multipliers’ do with the youth in our community.
Children the world over have a right to a childhood filled with beauty, joy, adventure, and companionship. They will grow toward ecological literacy if the soil they are nurtured in is rich with experience, love, and good examples.-Alan Dyer
