WILD Outside program - funded by the Government of Canada under theCanada Service Corps program http://wildoutside.ca WILD Outside is a national conservation-based youth leadership program designed for youth ages 15 to 18. By participating in this immersive program, young Canadians will experience opportunities for personal growth while developing and encouraging their own “conservation ethic”. Learning from CWF facilitators alongside their peers, youth who join the WILD Outside program will connect with other participants in their area by exploring the outdoors and planning and carrying out community-based conservation action projects in their own community. Participants in the program are encouraged to commit to 120 hours of service activity and engagement over a calendar year and will be recognized for their dedication. We aim to create a safe and inclusive atmosphere for all youth and hope to welcome young people from all communities, many different walks of life, and varying experiences to this exciting program.
While COVID 19 currently prevents participants from gathering together in person, that hasn’t stopped us from adapting our programming to bring people together virtually across the country. We are still encouraging interested youth to continue to register for our WILD Outside program; then join us as we connect online to learn about and plan conservation projects we can deliver once we get the green light to gather our WILD Outside participants together again.
