Together, with our agency partners we will collaborate in pursuit of the following goals:

  1. Expanding partnerships to create new outdoor play and recreation opportunities for millions of young people;
  2. Providing new or enhanced educational programs for grades K-12;
  3. Expanding service and volunteer programs to build a nation-wide network in support of our goals;
  4. Strengthening youth employment and training programs that meet mutual objectives through public/private partnerships; and
  5. Improving the National Prevention Strategy to advance the health and well-being of young people.
