This extraordinary program seeks to inspire young women to reach their highest potential, develop a stronger sense of self and community, and explore their personal connection to nature. Participants venture into the backcountry of Yosemite National Park with highly skilled female educators from NatureBridge for an expedition of discovery, leadership, and personal challenge. Thirteen young women will be chosen based on the strength of their applications and the recommendations of supportive educators and community leaders. Through the generosity of donors, we are able to offer this program for a fee of $150 per participant. The remaining program cost of $2,400 per scholar is supported by donations given in honor of Joie Armstrong's life and legacy. You can support the program by donating to NatureBridge and designating Armstrong Scholars program in the notes section.
