Our adventure leaders support the majority of Wild Diversity's programing. They lead single day and multi day adventures on land and on water. Our Leadership Development Program focuses on developing outdoorists and community members into outdoor leaders, regardless of the level of previous leadership or outdoor experience, through a combination of workshops, field training, feedback and growth. Our Leadership Development Training program is for People of Color and/or people in the LGBTQ community.
Our Youth Ecology program will support young people in their discovery of nature, foster a personal connection to the outdoors and create a foundation for future stewards. We are activating youth's sense of wonder for natural spaces and its ecology. Youth will develop their own strategies to take care of this planet and identify ways to become better stewards.
