Will's Hope has one program for Advanced Women in August 2024*.  If there is sufficient interest we will develop additional programs for the summer of 2024 provided lodging, instructors, and other logistics can be arranged.   These Advanced Programs are 9 to 12 days in length.  In 2024 participants will have the opportunity to explore the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and camp in US Forest Service campgrounds.  Program details & dates for August 2024 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/meeting at the participants home.  We will provide an 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.

  *Program dates are tentative.  If a Will's Hope program in Gardiner, MT does not make we are considering moving the Advanced Young Women's program to the Gardiner area in the May/June 2024 timeframe.  We should have firm dates prior to the Orientation in March 2024.  There is also the possibility that if we move the main program to the Gardiner area we may do a mini program in August to camp in the GYE.   Please call if you need more information. 

From the 2017 Program  T.S.' mom said "It was a fabulous program... It gave him hope in the sense he never thought he'd have an opportunity like this... It improved his sense of independence...Increased his confidence..."
