Nature Mentorship

Find your adventure.

Fuel your potential.

Our leadership curriculum focuses on developing centered, healthy, and motivated young adults who are the best role models for our community of nature-enthusiasts! We strive to create a community of teens who feel safe exploring their unique gifts and passions with confidence.


Mentors will create community through adventures that stretch their limits. Teens are inspired and empowered to act as leaders in their community with skills in decision-making, teambuilding, effective communication, and connection to the natural world.

Is Nature Mentorship for You?

Our mentors come from a variety of backgrounds with many different interests and skills.

But we all have a few qualities in common.
