Youth Program Accreditation

The Leave No Trace Youth Program Accreditation is a tool that educates directors, managers, teachers and other youth program leaders in the administration of essential Leave No Trace programming and organizational standards.*

*Note: purchase and download of the accreditation materials does not provide instant accreditation status. A program must go through the requirements for all eleven standards and formally apply for accreditation with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. More information about the accreditation process and application may be found here.

What is included the digital download?

The accreditation package includes:

  • the Accreditation Program Manual
  • the 2019 Standards
  • additional supplemental reporting documents
  • the Annual Reporting Requirements

After purchasing, a member accreditation team will be in contact with you to welcome you to the program. If you have any other questions, please contact Andrew Leary, National Youth Programs Manager at the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
