Inner City Youth Institute is made possible through collaboration between the United States Forest Service (USFS), Pacific Northwest Research Station (PNW), and Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service 4-H Youth Development Program.
USFS and PNW provide an annual grant to OSU Extension 4-H to fund staff, supplies and field trip transportation. In addition, federal agencies connect their staff to volunteer and mentor opportunities throughout the ICYI program.
OSU Extension 4-H implements the ICYI program utilizing 4-H staff, volunteers, infrastructure, evaluation processes and best practices in education and positive youth development.
We currently work with students at the following schools:
Stacey Sowders, Program 4-H ICYI Program Coordinator: 503-821-1125
Alice Phillips, OSU Extension 4-H ICYI Support Staff: 503-821-1125
Becky Bittner, Technology Transfer Specialist, PNW Research Station: 503-808-2599
