CALLING ALL YOUNG CHANGEMAKERS!
Join the Youth Leadership Program at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference at
The Marin Civic Center in San Rafael, California!
“Before Bioneers I thought that I was incapable of accomplishing anything great, I had no inspiration, which in turn gave me no drive. Now I have never been so inspired and ready to help others and the environment. My creativity is at an all time high.”
The Bioneers Youth Leadership Program is a life-transforming opportunity for young leaders and activists to learn, further develop leadership skills, build alliances, and strengthen the capacity and connection among youth and elders focused on environmental, social justice and food systems work. The Youth Leadership Program is a parallel program that occurs within the annual National Bioneers Conference where youth are encouraged—though not limited—to attend relevant, interactive youth-led workshops and activities.
“It is miraculous to be in a space with beings vibrating in similar ways as myself, to be heard and felt and recognized gives me courage to be my true self and spread that truth. Bioneers was a reassurance that I am not crazy or alone in my perceptions and concerns for this world! The love and truth I received at Bioneers lives through me and outward.”
As former Youth Leadership Program Director Kristin Rothballer said, “Youth are now defined by ecological crises in a way that past generations have not been.” The challenges are formidable indeed, but we are grateful to nurture, mentor and support the education and leadership of our youth as they carry forward the long struggle for building just and resilient communities.”
If you’re a young person age 13-23 and you’re committed to creating positive social and environmental change in the world, then you are primed to join us for the National Bioneers Conference and experience the Youth Leadership Program!

Here are some of the 2016 conference highlights
The Youth Leadership Program has been working for over 18 years to inspire, connect and provide resources to youth who are committed to making the world a better place. Last year we had almost 500 youth, of those almost half were youth of color and of those over 90 were Indigenous youth. The diversity extends to all levels of experience and engagement, individuals and groups, giving young aspiring change-makers the opportunity to add to their tool kit, develop relationships, expand their network and move forward on their path with new strength and purpose.
