CoalitionWILD is believes in the power that intergenerational exchange can have on reigniting the passion and commitment needed to fuel solutions for our planet. That’s why we’re committed to making this program 100% accessible and 100% free for our participants.

But we can’t do this without your support.

If you believe that the future of the planet is in the hands of our youth, consider sponsoring a mentee by making a donation.  


Participants in the program are not required to complete a project, task, or reports. Rather, we encourage both the Mentor and Mentee to set personal and professional goals for their 12-month experience in the programme during their first two meetings. CoalitionWILD places an emphasis on co-learning, co-creating, and co-mentoring throughout the program, highlighting the importance of cross-generational interactions and conversations.
Why you should apply as Mentee: Many successful people credit having a good mentor as a key factor to their success.  A mentor is an invaluable resource to shift from surviving to thriving in your field, to gain insight into past experiences and tricks of the trade, can increase and improve networks, and can provide feedback on working styles, attitude, technical knowledge, methodologies, etc. This programme provides the opportunity to expertly match you with a committed and experienced mentor in a casual but structured environment.
Why you should apply as Mentor: Being successful in what we do is not only measured by our outputs, reports, implemented projects, or funds raised, but also by the road we pave and the legacy we leave. Investing your time into an emerging conservationist enables and supports not only future generations, but also the future of our planet. This program it built upon an understanding of equal exchange, providing you with the platform to also learn from your partner, gain a new perspective, and reenergize your passion.
