WILD NIGHTS OUT is run on a scholarship system - this allows every young person to arrive on equal footing, no matter their socio-economic background. Matrics apply for a place on WILD NIGHTS OUT and have to write a motivational letter. Scholarships are allocated according to this motivation as well as a number of other factors.
WILD NIGHTS OUT was born out a desire to foster greater connection in young people as they are leaving school - with themselves, with others from diverse backgrounds and with nature.
This is something different from the conventional Matric Rage – a real way to acknowledge achievement and support school leavers to walk into the mountains as a metaphor for walking into the unknown next phase of their lives.
Many of our applicants come from challenging socio-economic environments, and places are allocated from motivational letters written as part of an application. We focus on creating a balanced group with a mix of gender and participants from diverse backgrounds from across the country.
As a potential donor we are happy to send you a full report from the previous events to evaluate the impact and scope of this project.
This will take just one minute of your time, and impact the life of a young person to envision what is possible for their future.
