So far this school year, the local non-profit Youth Experiential Training Institute (Y.E.T.I.) program has already organized over 20 outdoor adventures for more than 150 local students.

“Our team of program coordinators, teachers, and volunteers are working hard to support the Y.E.T.I. Clubs at eight school sites,” organizers said.

As we previously reported, in August, equipment belonging to Y.E.T.I. was stolen, which was a bit hit to the program.

“We are thrilled to announce that our equipment has been fully restored thanks to the generous support of our donors, insurance, and local equipment manufacturers,” officials added.

As Y.E.T.I. programs continue to grow, they are focusing on their “Truck YEA Campaign” to make a pickup truck available for trips as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, they are training a new group of volunteers to support all the exciting trips planned for the rest of the year.

“We appreciate your partnership in our mission to provide exceptional outdoor experiences for youth. Thank you for your ongoing support of Y.E.T.I.”

Volunteers Needed

Many Y.E.T.I. volunteer instructors have completed their yearly guide training, and in many cases, completed additional kayak, rock climbing, and mountain bike skills days.

Their next general training will be held on Saturday, Dec 16, 2023.
