Our mission: To protect wildlife and our environment and to build future conservation leaders by engaging youth in environmental stewardship projects worldwide. Our vision: We envision that all young people will take personal responsibility and action toward protecting wildlife and the environment in their communities through NWP projects, and that these inspired youth volunteers will become the next generation of conservation leaders worldwide. Our values : * Youth volunteers become leaders when they are given the freedom to identify and solve environmental problems on their own. * Wildlife and the environment benefit from litter cleanups, native tree plantings, nonnative plant removal, and community recycling programs. * Young people develop leadership skills and confidence, which helps them become responsible citizens, when they are empowered to make a difference. * Stewardship of the environment, for the benefit of wildlife and communities, requires long-term commitment from concerned citizens.
As of April 2010, * NWP Youth Volunteers = 17,781 * Total Hours Volunteered = 119,213 * Number of Countries Represented = 133 * Trash Removed/Recycled (kg) = 127,192 * Native Trees Planted = 83,648 * Area Restored for Wildlife (hectares) = 11,616
