In the Wild Leader

Are you experienced working with children or young people? Do you want to work outside more, deliver inspirational workshops in a new way, that will connect children and young people to nature while teaching them life skills?

Our In the Wild Leaders are trained to deliver well-being techniques that enable children and young people to connect with nature.

“A seed of an idea led to our awesome In the Wild Workshops. Whilst working on a project to plant an Earth Watch Tiny Forest, I saw how little many children connected with nature, the touch of soil was unusual for them. I saw the growth in them in just a short space of time when they were enabled to engage with nature and both the joy and calm this gave them, especially for children with SENDS. Coupled with this I saw first had how the Happy Confident Kids tools can transform a child in just a few session. With anxiety on the rise in young people we needed to do something different and after many walks and discussions with Laura (my friend and fellow Director); this is where the inspiration for In the Wild came from and the road map of workshops that has now been created. It’s been amazing to see the idea come to life and the impact it is having already to the participants.”
Miranda – Happy Confident Kids Director

Schools especially need ways and methods to support their well-being. We are not a Forest School we are something different; a way to give our participants well-being tools they can use for life that will help ground them, enable them to be more present and resilient. It’s been amazing to see the impact of our workshops.

During our In the Wild Master Class training we will teach you our five week road map, that can then be delivered in schools and clubs. The tools we will teach you are highly flexible and enable you to teach these to both small and large classes, indoor and outdoor.

“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.”
Luke – In the Wild Leader

“I had a great day at our In The Wild training day, it was great to learn how we can use our tools as coaches alongside the natural resources all around us to help children connect with nature, find calm and build their confidence and resilience. I’m really excited to get going and deliver these workshops to the children in my area.” Rosie – In the Wild Leader
