Youth Leadership Program

A week-long youth training program, aimed at 11-16 year olds and their parents, held twice a year in the Gobi Desert, in August and in October. The program was founded in 2009.

The children of the well-to urban families of modern China rarely get genuine outdoor experience, are often overburdened with school work and are under great pressure to perform academically. This program gives the youngsters and the parents an opportunity to learn basic outdoor skills together, to “rough it” in the desert and experience both the great outdoors and the importance of protecting the environment.
