Youth Outside

Mission They strive to ensure that the lived experience of all youth is honored as part of the outdoor experience. They provide grantmaking, capacity building, and training to promote healthy lives and inspire future champions of the planet. Vision They envision a day when all youth have equitable access to the positive benefits of meaningful outdoor experiences and the opportunity to be champions of our planet.  History In 2006, the Pacific Forest and Watershed Lands Stewardship Council (Stewardship Council) created a Youth Investment Program to support outdoor and environmental programming for youth. Realizing the importance of this work, the Foundation for Youth Investment (FYI) was established as its own entity in 2010, having been granted approximately $10.7 million from the Stewardship Council. In the Fall of 2015, FYI officially changed its name to Youth Outside to truly reflect the heart of our work: connecting youth to nature by eliminating barriers, providing resources, and promoting outdoor programming as essential for building healthy lives and inspiring future stewards of our planet. They know that outdoor education and programming is a powerful tool that can improve health and academic achievement, teach teamwork and problem-solving skills, and prepare youth for the workforce.
