Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting.

Bay Area Wilderness Training (BAWT) is a project of the Earth Island Institute a 501(c)3 corporation.

Mission Statement
To create opportunities for urban youth to experience wilderness first hand.

Vision Statement
BAWT exists as a vital, comprehensive and ongoing source of support to agencies that lead youth wilderness trips. We believe that urban youth, once exposed to wilderness, have a broadened sense of themselves, each other, and the world around them. BAWT extends it services to the eight counties of the San Francisco Bay Area. We hope other organizations will take this vision to the rest of the country and the larger world.

Primary Strategy
BAWT's primary strategy for achieving its mission is to provide Bay Area youth agency staff with wilderness leadership training and outdoor equipment so that they, along with the youth they serve, may explore the power and beauty of California's wilderness.

Values Statement
With this vision in mind, BAWT has developed a set of four core values:
1. Diversity - We promote a diverse community of environmental educators
2. Risk - We foster the virtues of positive, calculated risk taking
3. Environmental Stewardship - We honor and protect the earth
4. Relationships - We nurture a culture of learning through relationships.
