become a yU leader


The statistics show us that outdoor play is drastically decreasing while technology use/over-use is increasing.

Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, lack of friends, obesity...are all linked with this societal trend.  At Youth Unplugged, we help children engage their imaginations, get fresh air, learn positive values, and connect with community.

You can get paid (well!) to help children play outdoors! If you are interested in running an outdoor play class for 2 hours, once a week, in your hometown public park, we’d love to meet you!

You choose the hours, the pay is great, you’re outdoors in Nature, & best of all, you’re helping kids connect!
