Wild Tenders - Weaving Earth

Wild Tenders Youth Program

FOR YOUTH AGES 3 TO 16

The Wild Tenders nine-month youth program is a nature-based learning journey for youth ages 3-16. During the Wild Tenders program, we foster the celebration of, relationship with and commitment to our local ecosystems. Through direct experience and meaningful play, our students gain a deep knowledge of place. We create an environment where youth feel comfortable in nature and have the opportunity to form personal relationships with our wild neighbors. We encourage the child’s curiosity and passion to guide their learning and create a container where the youth learn to collaborate and support each other. We aim to nurture a commitment to equity, ecological and social justice. We emphasize nature as our greatest teacher, and the natural cycles lead the way.

Pricing and Financial Assistance

We are offering a 2-tier price point for this program:

  1. TIER A (rate of $14/hr) covers basic costs but doesn’t meet all of our organizational expenses. 
  2. TIER B (rate of $15/hr) covers the costs of running the Wild Tenders program. It is comparable with similar programs in the Bay Area. 

We recognize that both of these tiers may still be cost-prohibitive for families. We are committed to making Wild Tenders financially accessible to as many people as we can. At the moment, we offer payment plans and can also provide financial assistance via a partnering charter school, Summit Academy. To find out more, please contact Lauren Dalberth Hage.

We are in the process of developing a scholarship fund to offer additional financial support. If your family can pay beyond Tier B (for example, $16/hour or higher), please consider doing so! Anything contributed above Tier B is regarded as a tax-deductible donation and will be used to support scholarships and Wild Tenders program costs. Specific Tier prices for each program and age group are listed below, including donation tiers. If you are planning to donate, you can do so at any amount above Tier B. The price points below are there for your reference. You can specify which price point you are choosing in your application.
