Environmental education seeks to prepare students to make decisions that promote healthy natural and human communities. This project-based thesis describes the initial process of integrating environmental themes into an existing outdoor leadership program. It is based on a specific collaboration between two organizations, one of which specializes in environmental advocacy and education, and the other of which is an outdoor youth organization offering character and leadership development. This document introduces the circumstances underlying the collaboration, analyzes the relevant literature, and presents potential curricula based on the joint needs of the organizations involved and the youth that will participate in programs.
