Youth Water Leadership Program™
Student Videographers 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 more and view videos and
