Youth Programming

UntitledElemental Exploration Education (EEE) offers youth an opportunity to socialize, empower, and mobilize to create the change that they want to see in the world.

 

The EEE classes help orient the participants in place and space, allowing for exploration and personal communication, collaboration and a deep recognition of connection; the elements necessary for sustainable growth and world health.

The Programs offered by EEE offer age appropriate creative exploration of geography, science, art, music, sustainability, equality and community.  EEE programs offer an opportunity for young people to connect with nature and peers, all while exploring practical, transformational, positive social change.
