Note: To see all Photos & Information about Young Adults hover the cursor over the Young Adults Programs tab at the bottom of this page
Will's Hope has one program for Advanced Women in August 2023. If there is sufficient interest we will develop additional programs for the summer of 2023 provided lodging, instructors, and other logistics can be arranged. These Advanced Programs are 9 to 12 days in length. In 2023 participants will have the opportunity to explore the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and camp in US Forest Service campgrounds. Program details & dates for August 2023 are tentative. For this program to run we will need a minimum of 4 - 6 young adults. It will be on a first come first serve basis.
We are asking for participants and volunteers to let us know as soon as possible if they are interested in these programs or other programs. Screening, interviews, the application process, orientations, training and other pre-program activities take several months to accomplish. See the "Resources" page/tab for further information.
Please call Sarah Squire (719-210-5808) to discuss your interest in the Will's Hope Programs. For those individuals that are new to Will's Hope we can set up an informational briefing. We will provide a Pre-Application to interested persons that can meet the eligibility and physical requirements; and we believe the individual is a good fit and can be successful.
If you have any questions, want the most current information, want to know if an individual may qualify or want to enquire about additional programs being established please contact Sarah Squire at 719-210-5808.
