Youth Water Leadership Program™
Student Photographer Announcement
The Youth Water Leadership Program™ (YWLP) is a studentdriven
education experience intended to increase watershed
literacy and specifically Colorado watershed management
knowledge. The YWLP inspires meaningful dialogue and
community engagement among students and water resource professionals and policy
makers. Secondary students and teachers engage in project based learning to create
unique, student-driven water stewardship call-to-action projects. The development
process of a call-to-action project promotes critical thinking and leadership skills
applicable and tools necessary for the 21st century workforce. The YWLP connects
students with the best available watershed science and management information, exposes
them to experts in the field, and introduces them to future career possibilities in natural
resource and STEM fields.
The culminating signature event is a local Youth Water Summit, a student-driven
educational conference creating an opportunity for learning, dialogue, and action on
Colorado River Basin issues. Wild Rose Education founded and directs the YWLP. Read
