Thanks to all who have reached out and offered to help support the Youth Development Program.

We're still looking for people who know orienteers in the southeast, greater Texas, and the west coast to help us connect youth with people with similar interests in the orienteering community. Northeast and central US are comparatively well represented at this point. Interested in helping us get started? Let us know here.
