SOTS - Americas for Conservation+Art Outreach Coordinator
Launched in 2017, the summer camp of Promotores Verdes, United Cultures for Arts + Nature Green Ambassadors powers the next generation of diverse leaders by igniting a deep-rooted and lasting passion for conservation anchored in science, arts, and culture. The one week long outdoors immersion camp offers a curriculum built to empower youth to take action in their communities to promote healthy lifestyles, sustainable practices, environmental stewardship, and skills for outdoors recreation interpretation and leadership. U-CAN provides these young ambassadors with support through mentorship and fosters self-expression and growth. This environment enables students to enhance emotional intelligence, navigate adversity, build personal resilience, and strength in themselves that is necessary to protect our resilient natural world and its limited resources. Americas for Conservation + the Arts (AFC+A), in partnership with the support of the US Forest Service & its Woodsy Owl Conservation Corps, are looking forward to hosting young leaders from across the country, Puerto Rico and Mexico, to participate in the United Cultures for Art + Nature (U-CAN) Green Ambassadors Youth Congress this Summer of 2019.
