How does the Center work with diverse communities?

The Center has several programs in place to ensure that it is reaching the broadest cross-section of people possible with the Leave No Trace program. Connect, a grants program for culturally diverse communities, focuses on reaching youth and leaders/educators from Latino, African American, Black, Asian, Native American and other diverse communities. Additionally, Leave No Trace has translated its entire youth program, PEAK and Teen, into Spanish as well as other core educational pieces. The Leave No Trace Seven Principles have been translated into over a dozen languages and we offer customized Leave No Trace Master Educator Courses to the international community, work with over 50 international partners and have four international branch organizations. With regard to field-based training and people with disabilities, Leave No Trace has adjusted its curriculum to meet the needs of those in wheelchairs and with other physical disabilities when necessary.
