Hopa Mountain works to expand and enhance community-based opportunities for youth and adults. The majority of these efforts are informal (out-of-school) trainings for community leaders, with an emphasis on informal science education, program development, non- profit capacity-building, appreciative inquiry and strategic planning.


Hopa Mountain facilitates regional networks of rural and tribal citizen leaders along with forums to exchange ideas, collaborate on projects and offer one another support.
