Indigenous youth leadership training: May 28-June 4, 2019
This historic training aims to encourage Indigenous youth to be environmental advocates within the context of a spiritual connection to Mother Earth and the Waters. We will provide an unprecedented education from some of the most skilled Native American mentors in the country, designed to amplify the attendees' voices and wisdom within the movement, while also creating a support network that will strengthen the youth leaders' individual abilities to affect direct change in their local communities and around the nation as a whole.
Here is a quick overview of the Tracks we are offering at this Historic Training:
A Healing Exchange between the Elders and the Youth: Addressing the Psychological Effects of Decolonization
Leadership Development Skills
Arts within the Movement - The Art of Storytelling

Earth Guardians + CampMinder Present: Camp Consciously
CampMinder works with nearly 900 camps around the world, and as such has a unique opportunity to leverage the power of the camp community to implement and teach sustainability practices and to bring these practices to life in the camp setting. What if camps wanted to teach sustainability practices to their campers, but just needed some help with materials and lesson plans and a community to support them?
Earth Guardians has created lesson plans customized for camps, designed to inspire, educate and support young campers. For more, click here.
Earth Guardians is working in collaboration with Amplifier to bring our own curriculum to over 20,000 schools by sharing new icons of strong youth leaders with school kids.
YouthvGov Lawsuit: Kids suing to protect our Future
Youth are suing the government for failing to act on climate change
Earth Guardians and 21 youth plaintiffs are suing the federal government for the right to clean air, clean water, and a healthy future. These young leaders have created a wave of action as their case advances through the courts.
"The future of our generation is at stake" -Earth Guardian & YouthvGov plaintiff Victoria Barrett
"People label our generation as dreamers, but hope is not the only tool we have. I am a teenager. I want to do what I love and live a life full of opportunities. I want the generation that follows to have the same chance. I absolutely refuse to let our government's harmful action, corporate greed, and the pure denial of climate science get in the way of that. If anything, I'm going to use my positive energy to show my government that I won't let my world stop for them. WE won't let our world stop for them. Our generation will continue to be a force for the world."
