Skills Required Must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. If you are age 15 to 18, whether you are in high school or no longer attending, you are eligible to participate in a WILD Outside program. Youth under age 18 will require the permission of a parent or guardian to participate. Participation in the program will not interfere with your school schedule. The program is open to all regardless of physical or economic barriers; this is a no cost program with free enrolment that encourages people of all levels of physical capability to join.
Benefits to Volunteer The goal of the WILD Outside program is to inspire participants to develop a passion for conservation, awareness of their natural environment and a deeper appreciation for wildlife. It’s a fun, educational program that enables you to participate in a variety of conservation-themed activities, meet new friends, and discover an appreciation for the outdoors in a safe, structured environment. There are also incentives you can earn as you complete various stages of the program, including an official certificate awarded to you from the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Participation also counts towards other youth achievement initiatives you may pursue like the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
