The Desert Environmental Youth Experience (EYE) for Leaders program is presented by the California Regional Environmental Education Community (CREEC Network) and built on interactions and partnerships with teachers and community collaborators.

Desert EYE for Leaders Mission Statement

Our mission is to inspire, encourage and prepare the diverse youth of southern California communities for a life of environmental responsibility, civic participation, service and leadership by increasing awareness and knowledge of basic ecological principles and by fostering leadership skills. We assist our student groups with the resources they need to design, plan, and implement an environmentally based service-learning project.
