About Us

Our Partners

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.
