Our Summer Leadership Impact Program (SLIP) is a 4-6 week program conducted from mid-July to mid-August. Each summer, 15 youth (high school age) participants deepen their knowledge of socio-environmental issues that impact outdoor recreation and disproportionately affect BIPoC and other historically marginalized communities. This year, SLIP’s experiential curriculum provides an opportunity for high schoolers to:

  • Explore the effects and origins of of climate change, the state of our oceans, equitable access to public lands, and more
  • Strengthen their leadership, planning and advocacy skills
  • Build community with other teens
  • Gain exposure to a broad range of career opportunities
  • Go on summer adventures where they’ll learn to surf, camp, climb and more!

If you are a graduating Prophet (CP Alum) who is considering applying to be a Peer Leader in the fall, you are highly encouraged to complete SLIP and hone your leadership skills! Alumni who finish SLIP are automatically considered for a Peer Leader role. PL applications from those who did not complete SLIP will still be considered, however, spots may be limited.
