Our Mission:
The Women's Wilderness Institute (TWWI) is a nonprofit organization with the mission of strengthening the courage, confidence, and leadership qualities of girls and women, through the support and challenge of wilderness- and community-based experiences.

What our participants have to say about how our mission came to life for them:

"I learned that if I be who I am and not someone else I make a lot more friends and am more comfortable with myself." -Ellie, age 12

"I learned that I am magnificent and don't need people to compliment me and give me approval." - Jackie, age 52

"When I reached the top of that mountain, I was more courageous then I have ever felt before." -Natalie, age 31

"I learned that I have a much bigger impact on the world than I thought I had." -Jess, age 17

Thanks to our individual donors, foundations, corporate partners, scholarships are available for participants with financial need in the Girls' Wilderness Programs.
