About the program: WILD Outside aims to engage young people (between the ages of 15 – 18) in outdoor adventure, conservation, and community service projects. With the support of program leaders, youth will be given the opportunity to collaboratively plan and execute conservation service projects and outdoor adventures. Program structure consists of one full-day (Saturday or Sunday) event per month, as well as an optional weekday workshop/educational activity. This is a year round program. Where you come in: We may occasionally need an additional adult to be present during an outdoor adventure activity or conservation project. These would be full day events on the weekend. There would be no cost for the adult volunteer (any equipment, excursion fees, background checks, etc. would be covered). Responsibilities would include helping to facilitate the event, supervising youth for safe behaviour, and being a positive role model for the youth (which means your own enthusiastic participation in the activity and conversations!). No special training is required and you will NEVER be alone with the youth.
