“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not”. ~ Dr Seuss 

Eco-Mentor Families: When a family models nature connection we all benefit. The ripple effect touches friends, neighbors, co-workers, classmates and extended family. We create a culture of curiosity, empathy and leadership that crosses into all aspects of life, and leads to a more connected and beautiful world.

Junior Eco-Mentor: Explore. Learn. Protect. Share. The Junior Eco-Mentor motto (Similar to our national park Junior Ranger program) is a certification and an oath to protect wild places, continue to learn about nature, and share their own Eco-Mentor story with friends and family.

The VWild Junior Eco-Mentor program is an activity based program conducted in any outdoor space. We offer young teens the opportunity to join the Ventura Wild leadership “family” as a Junior Eco-Mentor not only to grow their own awareness, knowledge, skills and experiences, but to grow leaders and mentors.
