YOUTH ENGAGEMENT


When you give to the Minnesota Environmental Fund, you are ensuring that youth can learn, engage and be more empowered through leadership development, events and outdoor opportunities. Connecting youth to nature and environmental issues ensures the preservation of Minnesota’s environment for future generations. Your donations help engage youth by:
  • Addressing educational and opportunity disparities and ensuring that everyone has access to parks and healthy food.
  • Providing outdoor learning and stewardship in Minnesota’s national parks and wilderness.

  • Empowering Minnesota youth to lead on climate and conservation advocacy.

  • Training youth for environmental employment opportunities through job preparation programs.

Your donations will support these Minnesota nonprofits whose missions align with our  goals of engaging youth in environmental awareness:
