Environmental Leadership for Youth (ELY)
The ELY Program is a partnership bringing together the 4-H Outreach Leadership Institute, the OSU Fisheries and Wildlife Department, and local non-profits with an emphasis on watershed stewardship and natural resources careers. The ELY Program is designed for underserved high school youth in the Willamette Valley while increasing the diversity, equity and inclusion capacity of local environmental non-profits.
