Organized by: HSC WILD

Through the Wilderness Inspired Leadership Development (WILD for short) at High School in the Community in New Haven, CT, we offer a program designed to use outdoor adventure education as a backdrop to bringing healthy choices, relationship development, intrinsic motivation, and leadership opportunities to youth in the New Haven area. Focusing on trip planning and preparedness, small group dynamics, and mental and physical fitness, our goal is to strengthen the students by exposing them to environments rich in natural diversity. Students learn to use the public natural spaces around them while developing leadership skills and applying environmental stewardship.
After reflecting on WILD’s first year, our most significant success was piquing student curiosity and providing a forum for students to explore that curiosity. Our students are helping us plan more outings that are bigger, higher, and farther. We need your help to provide our students more opportunities to grow outdoors!
