About Glacier Peak Institute

Mission: We empower youth to build resilient and sustainable rural communities and healthy ecosystems across the Glacier Peak region of Western Washington through innovative, action-based education programs integrating Science, Technology, recreation, Engineering, art, Mathematics, and skill-building (STrEaMs).

The GPI bridges the gap between classroom lessons and real-world applications. Our interactive programs combine nature-based curriculum with learner-led research and problem solving. We work to empower students and build relationships—between schools, residents, tribes, universities, students, human service organizations, government agencies, businesses and their local ecosystems—for the posterity of rural communities. We also recognize a gap between the opportunities available to both rural and urban youth—seen in access to outdoor connection and STEM industry exposure. Through connecting the positive characteristics of urban and rural environments, we provide cultural and educational exchanges to find diverse solutions and increase opportunities for students of all backgrounds.

We engage rural youth with their environment through outdoor adventures, hands-on projects, and cultural exchanges. We do this by developing STEM lesson plans with Darrington School District teachers and designing immersive outdoor after-school and summer programs. We partner with local tribes, universities, nonprofits, and environmental groups to develop unique educational opportunities that empower students to identify, design, and solve today’s problems. Our students are encouraged to think creatively, work collaboratively, and live sustainably as they take ownership of environmental projects and the opportunity to impact their community.
