ELK Opens Doors to the Outdoors
ELK reaches out to students who
have been traditionally overlooked and under-encouraged
in science and science-related careers, including youth of color and females.
ELK opens new doors of opportunity by engaging and
mentoring youth through engaging science education and
leadership development programs that provide a real-life
context for learning. Youth experience Colorado's natural
world, increase their academic science skills, become involved
in their neighborhoods and get exposure to careers in the
field of natural resources.
Environmental Learning for Kids cultivates a passion
in science, leadership, and service in a diverse community of learners.
We envision a world in
which all people are caretakers
of themselves, each other and
the natural world.
