Short for Inspiring Young Emerging Leaders, I-YEL dates to the early days of the Presidio-based Crissy Field Center, a partnership project run by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in concert with the National Park Service and the nonprofit Presidio Trust.
While we were doing it we were hanging out with some amazing people and learning how to teach workshops and speak to a large crowd"--which she did after graduating from high school, when I-YEL helped get her a summer job as a park ranger at the Grand Canyon.
Following through on its goal of developing young leaders, I-YEL not only inspires its interns to set their sights on college but workers help with applications, submit killer recommendation letters--even lead group overnight trips to tour California colleges.
