An award is available for adult program leaders of youth community service or service learning programs to apply to be a part of an in service program. The goal of the award is to enable young adults who already work with youth to develop a partnership with the youth and work together to build healthier communities.

Youth Leaders in Service provides training and support to youth program leaders that engage rural and tribal youth, ages 11-17, living in Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation, in leading service-learning activities that create healthier communities.

Hopa Mountain invests in rural and tribal citizen leaders, adults and youth, who are working to improve education, ecological health, and economic development. Through Youth Leaders in Service, Hopa Mountain will provide training, networking, and support services to adults who are committed to developing out-of-school service-learning programs for youth ages 11-17 in rural and tribal communities.
Benefits of participating in YLS for adult program leaders:
 Gain valuable leadership skills and confidence in developing out-of-school service-learning programs
 Improve the work you are doing (or want to do) to support positive youth development through community-service and service-learning
 Build your knowledge, skills and resources to offer ongoing youth programs
 Learn more about the 40 Youth Developmental Assets, service-learning, and experiential education
 Share best-practices through peer-to-peer training and coaching

Hopa Mountain is looking for individuals in rural and tribal communities who are committed to working with youth, especially those at-risk. This is an excellent training, leadership and mentoring opportunity.

Adults work with youth to determine meaningful community service projects, provide training and reflection on the process, support the recruitment of additional adult volunteers, and manage grant funds and documentation. Youth, with service-learning adult mentors, design and implement innovative service projects with local community partners that improve their community and build their civic engagement, academic, leadership and community problem solving skills.
