Go! LEAD: Opportunities for young people who have been to (or are interested in) Camp LEAD

Go-LEAD employs young people ages 16-22 with diverse abilities who have been to Camp LEAD (or are interested in attending).This is a fun opportunity to engage in year round programming focused on job training and environmental education. Participants help maintain public recreation areas, learn about outdoor related careers from Forest Service speakers & receive take-home conservation boxes with tools and recreational gear. Go!-LEAD provides the opportunity for young people to build their confidence, learn new job skills, and earn wages while helping improve public lands throughout Central Oregon. This is a supportive and fun environment for participants to reconnect with existing friends, while also forging new connections with peers they have yet to meet.
