ELP’s BES Youth Advocacy Council spent the spring raising awareness about the importance of outdoor education!  Take a sneak peak at the advocacy video they made with Shawn Kimball, drafting, filming, editing and carefully choosing the soundtrack!  Don’t be surprised if they knock on your door!  This motivated crew is selling YAC gear to raise money for outdoor equipment! The future’s looking bright!
