Wilderness Works serves disadvantaged youth from the Atlanta area.
A key Wilderness Works program called Field Camp allows youth opportunities to camp, hike and backpack in National Forests and National Parks. Wilderness Works has allowed children to experience Rocky Mountain, Glacier, Yosemite, Mount Rainier, Olympic, Great Smoky Mountain, Cumberland Island and more National Parks.
This opportunity is for persons with meaningful experience in outdoor living including camping, hiking and backpacking. Wilderness Works is looking for volunteers inclined to enthusiastically teach the skills they know so that disadvantaged youth might be excited to venture out into the wild!
Your experience with meal preparation on the trail will also be a great source of information.
Wilderness Works also teaches about canoeing and topics around ecology, geology and more!
Maybe you can join us on the trail!
