Students are invited to attend The Youth Leadership Program at Bioneers, October 16-18, in San Rafael, CA, a parallel program that occurs within the annual National Bioneers Conference where youth ages 13-23 are encouraged—though not limited—to attend youth-related workshops and activities.
The Bioneers Youth Leadership Program is a life-transforming opportunity for young leaders to learn, further develop leadership skills, build alliances, and strengthen the capacity and connection among youth and elders focused on environmental, social justice and food systems work. The Youth Leadership Program is a parallel program that occurs within the annual National Bioneers Conference where youth are encouraged—though not limited—to attend youth-related workshops and activities.
As former Youth Leadership Program Director Kristin Rothballer said, “Youth are now defined by ecological crises in a way that past generations have not been.” The challenges are formidable indeed, but we are grateful to nurture, mentor and support the education and leadership of our youth as they carry forward the long struggle for building just and resilient communities.

There are scholarships for youth with financial need as well as deeply discounted rates for students and educators.
