The Wilderness Technology Alliance
Providing Leadership & Technology Skills with Work-Based Learning that leads to Employment and Entrepreneurship in the Technology Sector – all in a self-sustaining way.
The Wilderness Technology Alliance (WTA) partners with schools and community based organizations to implement technology training and work-based learning programs where students and volunteers gain skills in the classroom and experience by providing valuable technology products and services to their school and local community. The WTA also trains teachers, students and community leaders to operate technology service-learning programs and Community Technology Centers (CTCs) in their schools and community organizations.
Programs are run as ‘WildTech’ Student Enterprises that generate revenue to self-sustain and grow. The WTA supports these programs with on-going training, surplus technology, wilderness leadership camps, WildTech annual conferences and more.
