Youth Empowerment

"The young people really get it. When they relate to the land from their hearts, everything just falls into place."

Taking place at the Windsong Peace and Leadership Center in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Take Action Camp Arizona brings together young people from all over the world. They delve into local and global issues alongside like-minded campers and learn firsthand about local issues like sustainability and cross-border migration. Along the way, they build skills in leadership and public speaking.


Deep Dirt Institute is an integral part of this program. Over the past 10 years, over 3,000 youth have come to work and learn at the farm. They have left with the knowledge, inspiration, and practical tools to make changes in their own lives and the lives of their communities.
