Board Service

Do you spend your free time exploring the outdoors? Do you want to share your passion for the outdoors with youth? Do you believe that all children should have access to outdoor adventures?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, consider joining the Youth Experiential Training Institute (Y.E.T.I.) Board of Directors to help ensure that all youth have the opportunity to develop GRIT through challenging outdoor adventure.

The Y.E.T.I. board is a working board comprised of outdoor enthusiasts who believe in providing affordable access to outdoor recreational activities to all youth. We come to the board with a variety of skill sets and take a “hands on” approach to help our Executive Director expand our programs which means we play an instrumental role in fundraising, community engagement, and partnerships.
