WHAT IS GENERATION WILD, INC.?
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Boise, ID, who focuses on improving and changing the lives of our youth through mentorship within fly fishing and outdoor adventure. Through spending time in solitude, we empower youth to live fulfilling and intentional lives, and to become leaders of their generation. We focus on teaching skills relating to character development, self discovery, and leadership. During the "age of information", we believe it is imperative now more than ever, to separate youth from their technology to spend time outdoors and think clearly. We believe this connection to nature will create a lifelong love for the wilderness and offer a healthy outlet for youth to find direction in their lives. We have hopes that this lifelong love for the outdoors will establish "Direction through Solitude" in the lives of our youth. We currently focus most of our trips around fly fishing, camping, and hiking. Coming in 2020 we will also begin programs for both bikepacking and backpacking. The kids who participate in our program range from ages 12 - 18 years old.
Mission Statement: To establish direction and purpose in the lives of teens through spending time in solitude.
Vision Statement: To empower teens to become the leaders for tomorrow. Through fly fishing and outdoor adventure, we strive to develop the skills necessary for teens to live an intentional and fulfilling life.
