2019 Wyoming Youth Leadership Retreat
Rising 7th to 12th graders are invited to attend one of two Wyoming Youth Leadership Retreats taking place at the Teton Science School in Jackson in the spring and fall of 2019.
April 12-14, 2019
October 4-6, 2019
The Retreats offer the opportunity to experience the world-class leadership training program at Teton Science Schools, as well as meet top state leaders and experts in traffic safety, substance abuse prevention, and mental health awareness who will offer training and resources and empower youth to make a positive change in their communities.
Teton Science Schools inspire curiosity, engagement and leadership through transformative place-based education that fosters leadership, team building and individual expression through student-driven learning. The activities allow youth to experience the beauty of our great state and build teamwork and friendships with their peers.
Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police (WASCOP) Education and Prevention campaign are hosting the Retreats as an important step in establishing and empowering a statewide coalition of youth leaders committed to encouraging their peers to make positive, healthy decisions.
Students are required to attend as part of a school or youth-serving organization led by an adult supervisor. In order to allow as many groups as possible to attend, each organization should limit participation to five youth with the understanding that additional spaces may open up prior to the Retreat.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, the cost for participation is $25/person, including meals and activities. Parent permission forms will be required for each youth participant.
To register, please email Joey Burke or Rhea Parsons and they will reply with the link to the registration form. You may also email them with any questions you may have.

#WYAMPLIFY believes all youth deserve a space to feel connected, supported, and empowered to lead happy and healthy lives. We seek to develop young leaders, empower them to build relationships in their local communities, and give them the opportunity to use their creativity and insights to encourage other youth to embrace positive, healthy lives.
