As the pandemic continues, Wilderness Youth Project remains deeply committed to serving Santa Barbara youth by providing them with meaningful opportunities to connect with nature. WYP’s work has never been more important than it is now–and its benefits have never been clearer. Over the past year, Santa Barbara kids have been grappling with uncertainty, a loss of community, and an absence of the structure typically provided by school and extracurriculars. At WYP, we have observed that facilitated time in nature makes children smarter, healthier and happier–and for kids, especially, time outdoors can be one of the best ways to mitigate the challenges we are all facing together during this pandemic.
Thanks to generous and visionary support from our donors, we are poised to continue our nature connection work together, and WE ARE HIRING to continue to expand into some of the opportunities that have opened during this time.
WYP is committed to granting equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons. Affirmative action considerations will be used in the selection process.
