The Outdoor Leadership Program is an emergent initiative to offer a transformational culturally-specific program for underserved young adults in the Columbia Gorge region. Outdoor Leadership Program participants will have personal and professional development trainings that support them in becoming outdoor leaders.

The program honors lived experience and builds on the knowledge, capacity and expertise of each participant. Through exposure to the local outdoor economy, through local internships, and nation-wide scholarship opportunities, CultureSeed opens the doors to economic opportunity through the public and private sectors in the abundant environmental and recreational fields of the Columbia Gorge.
