Our program members from around the country are working in collaboration with hundreds of schools and youth agencies to ensure that we combat nature deficit disorder and reconnect the youth of today to nature.

We are reaching 50,000 youth annually, and yet we’re barely scratching the surface of our potential to create equity in the outdoors.

On stage Kyle Macdonald, founder and director of Outdoors Empowered Network and our honored guests, the youth workers that use the program to connect youth to nature here in the Bay Area and beyond!

Proceeds from the nights fundraising effort will support the national efforts of Outdoors Empowered Network to seed and support a network of programs that get ALL youth outside.

Lighthouse tours are hosted by the Pt. Bonita YMCA in partnership with the National Park Service and Outdoors Empowered Network.
