Let's Move Outside: Gateway Serve

The Department of the Interior is the lead agency for former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Outside initiative. The Department was joined by the YMCA of the USA and the National League of Cities (NLC) to coordinate efforts to bridge the growing disconnect between young people and the great outdoors by creating meaningful connections to nature through four pillars: play, learn, serve and work.  

Through this partnership, the YMCA and National League of Cities, with support from American Express, are advancing the Department of the Interior'goal of seeding and supporting efforts that bring the four pillars of play, learn, serve and work alive for millions of children, young adults and veterans in communities across the country.

Youth and families from across the country will learn new skills, engage with others and develop dedication to the great outdoors through service projects, recreation and environmental education. By offering consistent access to these public lands, Let’s Move! Outside is helping to inspire and foster nature lovers for life.
