To end each academic year, NYA takes 30 participants (middle schoolers and Youth Leaders) for a week-long trip to Yosemite.  In Yosemite, our students experience inspiring and breathtaking outdoor adventures that are unavailable to them in urban Los Angeles.  The annual trip also doubles as a leadership retreat in which our Youth Leaders engage in intensive programming to learn about themselves and how to be effective leaders in our dynamic world.

Our annual trip to Yosemite is made possible by the generous donations of the Zurlo Family Foundation.
