Summit Values Reflection

The Wild Center's Youth Climate Program is driven by six core values: student-driven, action-oriented, solutions-focused, place-based, equitable, and hopeful. The following tool helps identify how these values are reflected throughout the summit network. We use the results of this survey to continue improving the Toolkit. If you succeed or struggle, we want to know how and why so the entire network can continue to grow. High ratings (4-5) indicate strong values, while lower ratings (1-2) indicate values that could be strengthened.
