Outdoor Youth Ambassadors learn about the art of photography and the importance of photographing nature. With the guidance of xRez, the Youth Ambassadors have been motivated to share through photography their outdoor experiences with a wide group of their peers. Spreading the sense of awe found when urban youth get to experience the great outdoors. 

“This past year, I heard about the Medicines Global Outdoor Youth Ambassador programs. With them I was able to get hands on experience in nature. I desire to climb mountains and gain the knowledge needed to become an active member of the outdoors. I want to inspire more people to go out and see the world. I want to be able to say I’ve done something positive for our planet.” Colleen Smith, Class 2013, San Pedro High School, Medicines Global Outdoor Youth Ambassador.
