Literacy 3.12

Youth Outdoor Unity’s Literacy 3.12 program helps build or improve reading and writing proficiency for youth in grades 3-12. To achieve this we combine various fields including Media and Photography, Journalism, Literacy Coding, Public Speaking, and Performance Arts to inspire interests.

The Literacy 3.12  program is founded and directed by our president, Kim Nesbit who holds her Master's Degree in Education.

The Art of Living 

The Art of Living Project was designed to provide youth with an opportunity to discover, experience and appreciate nature through environmental education and participation in outdoor activity programs. The purpose of the project is to raise awareness, increase cooperative learning, promote critical thinking and influence behavioral change while allowing our youth to have fun in the process; thus, contributing to academic achievement in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.

Because today's youth spend more time watching television and playing videogames then being physically active, our programs encourage participants to make positive lifestyle changes. We believe time spent outdoors increases attention spans, reduces stress, burns calories, improves school performance and helps develop more meaningful interpersonal skills. The Art of Living project includes several programs that allow youth to get in touch with nature and encourage outdoor recreation to be included in their regular exercise routine including:

  • Mentoring Program

  • Western Heritage Preservation

  • Outdoor Outreach Service

  • Environmental Education

  • Agricultural Enrichment
