Trainings

About the Trainings:

Our Member Programs offer a comprehensive selection of trainings for youth workers, including topics ranging from day-hiking and basic car-camping, to wilderness first-aid and advanced backcountry skills.  All trainings focus on how youth workers and teachers can keep kids safe, warm and dry, and ultimately empower their students through outdoor experiences. 

Below, a few teachers reflect on their Wilderness Leadership Training with Member Program, Los Angeles Wilderness Training (LAST):

Once trained, these new outdoor leaders are fully prepared to take their own students on trips. 

Sometimes near, and sometimes far, but always on trips that make a positive - sometimes transformational- difference in young people's lives.
