As the program has grown, the Wild Center has sought the advice of several of its alumni. These students have been sent as representatives of the program to conferences and other climate summits across the world, interned for the Wild Center, served as mentors for the youth climate retreats, and initiated new summits at their respective universities. Now, all these activities are encapsulated in their role as members on the Youth Climate Advisory Board, maintaining a youth voice in the greater workings of the program, even after students are out of high school.
