CoalitionWILD is unlocking the code that expedites learning and discovery that empowers up-and-coming leaders to hit the ground running.
In 2017, CoalitionWILD partnered with the United States Department of Interior for a 12-month Mentorship Program that connects young environmental leaders with veteran conservationists. The program provides mentees with new resources increasing their capacity for success and empowering them to be more effective leaders.
The young leaders gain access to advice, expertise, and encouragement through personal contact with a conservation veteran. The mentors gain an outlet to share their experience and to foster and guide the next generation of leaders.
“This program is an example of how we can address the challenges ecosystems face around the world at this time of growth and climate change, actively engaging young people to carry this work forward.”
