Apply to be a part of the Wild and Weightless crew.
Does being outside make you feel strong, empowered and confident in your body? Are you into fostering community that promotes positive body image? Do you want to make the outdoors a more inclusive space for people of all body sizes?
We want you to tell your story.
From the beginning, Wild and Weightless has been about creating a fostering a community that is safe for all to talk about the relationship they have with their bodies. Through countless interviews and connections, we have found that many people have had the experience that outdoor activities have helped them heal and rebuild a trusting relationship with their body. We know that being in the outdoors reduces stress, builds self-esteem, and offers a sense of connection to our bodies, to the earth and to others. This is something that should talked about and be celebrated!
This is where you come in.
As a Wild and Weightless ambassador your role will be to inspire others to get out and celebrate their bodies for all that they can do! Disordered eating habits, and voices of negative self talk only grow stronger if we do not expose and talk about them. The goal of creating this community is to support each other and normalize emotions that we feel. We want others to know that they are not alone in their struggle or pain, and its okay to feel the feelings! Your courage will inspire others to speak out against diet culture, ask for help, or plan that adventure they have always dreamed of.
As an ambassador, your words and photos will be featured on the Wild and Weightless Instagram. You will receive monthly prompts that inspire you to not only go on epic adventures, but also look inward and inspire healing. You will be supported to host your own hikes or meet ups, if you so choose. Best of all you will be invited to a free ambassador weekend where we will adventure, and connect as a group. Being an ambassador is a 6 month commitment and you will be asked to create 2-4 posts a month. You do not have to be hardcore, fit into a certain size, or look a certain way: your story matters!
