Lincoln Hills Cares uses nature as a tool for youth development. Our Pathways Programs prepare youth for higher education and career opportunities through an employment-based youth development model. We understand that people protect what they love and love what they know. We aim to foster a love of nature through our shared work experiences, as we represent and develop the changing face of America’s future in public and environmental health, conservation and the environment. Regardless of what career or educational direction our youth choose to pursue, we strive to help build young leaders through job training, entrepreneurship, mentorship and social and emotional support.
