Our Teen Leadership for transgender, questioning, gender non-conforming, non-binary (TGQN), and otherwise LGBTQIA+2 youth has been combined with our Coyote Path and Coyote Howl Programs. 

Explore. Discover. Connect.

New and returning teens are invited to lead each other on new paths, as they venture out to diverse natural areas and light fires of inspiration and connection. 

Welcome to the Circle! Each gathering will be chock-full of skills to learn and practice!

Our pre-teen and teen meet-ups offer an incredible opportunity to learn life skills in the outdoors amongst a supportive group of peers and highly qualified mentors. Our process and small group size ensure an inclusive and supportive group culture.

We are excited to witness and nurture the creativity and ingenuity of these awesome young minds!
