To prepare them for the inevitable challenges which lie ahead, there is an urgent need to educate young people about the environment. Reaching youth through formal education systems is one alternative. Environmentally educating them through non-formal, youth agency settings is another. This project has taken the latter approach. "A Trainer's Guide to Environmental Education and the Girl Scout Program" was developed as a resource to increase the emphasis placed on environmental education within the Girl Scout Organization. There is potential for environmentally educating 2.3 million youth as a result of the training initiative.
