Fellowships to USA and Canada individuals to foster character building and business skill development. Eligible applicants are young environmental and social entrepreneurs. Fellows will participate in wilderness retreats that build leadership, teamwork, and connection. Additionally, fellows will receive support from mentors and peers.
Wild Gift is a nonprofit organization that supports the next generation of social and environmental entrepreneurs through a unique wilderness-based Fellowship. Over 60 Wild Gift Fellows are now working around the world in affordable housing, conservation, community development, education, energy innovation, public policy, and sustainable agriculture.
The Fellowship year includes three wilderness experiences: The Deep Wilderness Trek at the beginning, the mid-Fellowship retreat, and the 1-week retreat and celebration close after successfully completing all requirements of the Fellowship. Lessons learned in the challenging, unpredictable environment of a wilderness expedition have direct applications to today’s business world. The Wild Gift—an extended wilderness expedition in the Idaho backcountry—challenges Fellows physically and emotionally, takes them out of their comfort zone, and connects them to the natural world on a very personal level. Fellows unplug, incubate ideas, envision their work and lives, and gain the courage, resilience, balance and grit critical to effective leadership. This experience has a bonding effect, inspiring a collaborative spirit and a holistic worldview.
