We are so proud of the many Grand Canyon Youth alumni!

Many have gone on to work at National Parks, become scientists, teachers, or Grand Canyon Youth guides, drivers and volunteers.

There are many ways Grand Canyon Youth Alumni give back to their communities; one way is through the Alumni Scholarship Fund. This is a scholarship fund started, funded, managed, and distributed by Grand Canyon Youth alumni. If you are a former or current Grand Canyon Youth participant, please consider making a donation to the Alumni Scholarship Fund. You can be a part of sharing these transformational experiences with more youth! If you would like to learn more about the Alumni Scholarship Fund, please contact us at

Donate to GCYWe love to hear from our alumni. If you have a story to share about how your Grand Canyon Youth experience was transformational for you, please tell us! Like a good story around the dinner circle at camp, stories from our participants bring us so much joy and help us share the importance of these programs with others.

2016 Alumni Fund This year we funded three young people from Los Angeles to go on a Grand Canyon trip. Here is what they had to say about their experience.

2015 Alumni Fund In its inaugural year the Alumni Fund supported 22 youth from PEAK school in Flagstaff. This trip was coordinated by a GCY Alumna and supported youth from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.
