Wilderness Youth Project (WYP) enjoys several relationships with specific schools around the Santa Barbara region. Wilderness Youth Project picks the children up on-site directly after their school day ends and returns to the school at the end of a 3 hour program. Typically, these programs have a slightly broader age range than our general after-school program. These programs are not open to the general public but are intended only for students of the respective schools. For registration inquiries related to School Based Programs please contact the registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Adelante Charter School: WYP is currently partnering with the 6th grade at Adelante Charter School. Over the course of the 2015-2016 school year WYP will alternately take half of the sixth grade out of the classroom every Thursday for a four hour program. WYP programs are an excellent model to initiate learning and deepen connection. The partnership has the added benenfit of leaving the classroom teacher a four hour block each week to attend more closely to half the class. WYP is committed to finding a functional balance between the student led hand’s on approach of a typical WYP program and the academic goals of our public school system.
