Isolation, burn out, and lack of resources should never be a reason for failure – especially for passionate and driven young people who have a vision for a better planet.
“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.”
about the program
The CoalitionWILD Ambassador Program is a rigorous 9-month leadership development program offered at no charge. At the completion of each yearly session, participants of the program have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to develop, organize, and facilitate personal action projects in their communities – generating real, on-the-ground change. Each cohort gains access to an online database of resources, toolkits, and best practices to guide participants on their learning journey. Over the course of the program, monthly webinars are offered and recorded on a host of topics delivered by VIP Guest Speakers giving firsthand knowledge and expertise. In addition, each CoalitionWILD Ambassador is paired with a peer mentor for the course of the program, who acts as a support, advocate, advisor, and new connection.
By the end of the program, Ambassadors will have the know-how – as well as the encouragement and support – to effectively:
- Envision a solution to a challenge they are passionate about
- Develop an action plan, strategy, and timeline for carrying out that vision
- Communicate their project to others
- Identify, recruit, and engage volunteers, participants, members, or supporters
- Develop a budget and/or fundraising plan (if necessary)
- Set specific, measurable, and attainable goals
- Execute strategy and tactics
- Take their original vision and turn it into action!
