Leadership Development Program

The Leadership Development Program (LDP) offers leadership training to aspiring outdoor leaders interested in pursuing employment with conservation corps and outdoor programs.

 The Leadership Development Program (LDP) was created in 1996 to offer leadership opportunities to people interested in pursuing employment with Northwest Youth Corps or other similar outdoor pursuit programs in a leadership capacity. The program integrates team-based work projects, education, and on-site vocational training into a curriculum that stresses leadership growth, and the development of conservation work skills.

Participants will develop hard skills working on conservation and recreation projects while developing the soft skills required to successfully lead conservation work crews.
