Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) created the Generation Wild movement to connect kids and families to outdoor activities. In response to GOCO’s call, the Generation Wild of the Pikes Peak Region coalition was formed to encourage kids and families in Southeast Colorado, and beyond, to spend time together outside–improving overall health, and fostering a love, appreciation, and familiarity with nature and the natural beauty in the Pikes Peak Region.
This position is housed at the Catamount Institute. Primary responsibilities will be to work with the Catamount Institute Executive Director to promote, plan, and execute Generation Wild Pikes Peak programs; getting more kids and families outdoors and connected to coalition members; building relationships to strengthen the coalition and brand ensuring opportunities and programs are full; driving community engagement, and identifying opportunities for program providers to support community-identified and culturally relevant needs
