Become an In the Wild Leader

Your passion for nature, life experience and qualifications coupled with our training & ongoing support, through our membership, will enable you to become an In the Wild leader; where you can deliver and teach important life skills to children and young people.

Connecting children and young people to nature while teaching them life skills.

How do I become an In the Wild Leader?

All In the Wild Leaders typically have some coaching or teaching experience and have worked with children or young people before e.g. coaches, people who have worked with children and are looking to get into coaching or teachers / staff in schools; where they can then roll out the sessions directly to students.

Our in the Wild Leader training is an immersive experience where we teach you our In the Wild roadmap and all the tools to use for the In the Wild sessions.

We are something new and different.

Our sessions are highly accessible for schools/groups etc they can be done in both inner city and rural schools and are highly flexible.

Schools especially need methods to support well-being and also enable children & young people to connect with nature. We teach our young participants well-being tools they can use for life so they can understand emotions, ground themselves, enable them to be more present and resilient. Being an In the Wild Leader will give you a unique set of tools; bringing an innovative approach for teaching well-being to children and young people.

“The training was great, both Miranda and Laura were amazing hosts and full of positive energy. The content was really engaging and we were given chance to practice ourselves and get first hand experience of the sessions. I am very much aware of the disconnection many young people have with nature and I’m so excited to offer opportunities for them to reconnect, while exploring their own thoughts and feelings, and boosting confidence in a playful way.”
