Through intentional mentoring, we facilitate and evoke curiosity and creativity, helping students cultivate deep connections to nature, community and self.  Formerly known as the Natural Leaders program, teens who are interested in serving with Riekes programs now will become a part of the Riekes Center's Community Service department where they get the opportunity to assist with weekday homeschool programs, campouts, excursions, and other Riekes Center activities. This program allows them to explore their interest in nature more deeply while also learning about Creative Arts and Athletic Fitness, making new friends, and building leadership skills.  Each year, teens participating in the Riekes Community Service program have the opportunity to participate in a summer sleepover at the Riekes Center and a special weekend campout.
