Mentoring in the Outdoors is undergoing an evaluation for 2012 - 2013. Please check in later for future dates or contact HeartWood at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mentoring in the Outdoors provides support to adults and older youth interested in building their skills and experience in working with young people in the outdoors. Topics include mentorship, planning safe, fun and magical outdoor activities with and for young people, child/youth and volunteer safety ~ and much more!
The wilderness is a natural setting for magic, adventure, self-discovery and building relationships with the land and other people. This weekend module uses the outdoors as a classroom to explore youth development, mentoring and youth-adult partnerships in the context of creating and facilitating positive outdoor experiences. The weekend will consist of outdoor adventures, meaningful conversations, fun and games, time for reflection, storytelling and much more. If you are a recreation staff, youth leader, parent, senior youth leader, or interested in working with young people in the outdoors, this is a great opportunity to share your skills, build your confidence, learn from others’ experiences and gain exposure to new resources.
