Lack of resources, isolation, and burn out should never be a reason for failure – especially for youth who envision a better planet and who have the ambition to make it a reality.
CoalitionWILD Ambassadors are guided through an intensive 9-month capacity building program to facilitate their leadership growth and expand their practical skills, culminating with a requirement for each Ambassador to implement a passion-driven initiative of their own design and development. Participants that complete the requirements of the program will receive an official Certificate of Completion.
Applications for the 2019 Ambassador Cohort are now open.
“When I first started out, I had a feeling that I was venturing into a world unknown.
I thought it would be difficult working with people I have never met before, and that the expectations on me would be too high. I had an idea but was not sure how to get it started.”

“Thanks to CoalitionWILD I’m now better informed, have a belonging, am well-planned, and with a myriad of resources I need to properly implement my project. I can confidently say that with the aid of CoalitionWILD, my project is now on course, impacting the community one step at a time.”
