Four Corners: Past and Present

Join Youthlinc on a journey to the Four Corners area of Utah where we will engage in activities that will give you a greater understanding of the Navajo and Ute experience, learn about the significance of and hike beautiful Bears Ears and Monument Valley, help organize and run a youth day camp at White Mesa, stay in the heart of Oljato, and absorb the beauty of southeast Utah and northern Arizona. 

The team will stay at a cottage in Blanding and at a traditional Navajo hogan in Oljato (Monument Valley). 

Get ready to do service, learn a lot, and do some incredible hikes as we explore Four Corners Past and Present.

Cost: $1,199.  If you are a part of the Service Year already, the cost is only $699!
