Mission Statement

To create opportunities for urban youth to experience wilderness first hand.

Description

Los Angeles Wilderness Training (LAWT) helps get kids outdoors by providing supports to adults who regularly work with youth. LAWT is a project of Earth Island Institute.

LAWT trains teachers, after school program staff, adult youth leader, and other adult youth workers how to lead their kids on camping and backpacking trips.

We also support these trips with free alumni access to equipment in our gear library. In LAWT’s gear library, we will have tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, clothes, boots, backpacks, stoves, etc.

There are no other organizations in LA County offering this service.
