W=Whole Person Focus

A W.I.L.D. learning environment focuses on all aspects of the person, first and foremost by nurturing all areas of your development as a person and a professional. Change happens in a school or organization when the experience changes for the adults.

I=In It Together

A W.I.L.D. learning environment creates community between adults and children to cultivate the skills necessary to learn and grow socially and emotionally. It takes more than one person to shift the learning environment; it takes a community.

L=Learn What's Right With You

A W.I.L.D. learning environment recognizes each individual’s strengths. We are cultivating positive traits in every one of us. A strength-based focus will bring out what is strong and right within.

D=Develop Resilience

A W.I.L.D. learning environments recognize resilience grows through supportive relationships, community interactions, and skill-building. Resilient people can adapt to adversity, cultivate positive relationships, and increase their wellbeing.
