Pathways for Youth

Olympic National Park Pathways - Inspiration, Connection, Stewardship
 

Pathways for Youth at Olympic National Park is a way to deliberately connect young people to career paths in the National Park Service. Our hope is to lead new stewards into fulfilling and meaningful careers.

Pathways for Youth begins with hands-on education for young people in the natural environment of Olympic National Park. Interpretive programs tailored to every age group address topics such as climate change, which have implications on a global scale. Students who have developed a solid foundation and interest in the resources of Olympic can complete their senior culminating projects for graduation at our park.
