Wilderness Leadership & Learning (WILL) is a highly interactive 12 month experiential learning, youth leadership development program. Our mission is to provide unique experiences and learning opportunities which inspire and assist teens to reach their full potential, make good decisions, and become leaders.
WILL utilizes DC’s natural and cultural resources to serve as its primary learning venues. From October through the following September, participants are together no less than 275 hours, which equates to at least 1½ hours per student school day. Activities take place on Saturdays, weekday school holidays, and include a week-long summer backpacking expedition on the Appalachian Trail. To learn more, visit WILL’s website www.will-lead.org.
