Wild Tenders YOUTH PROGRAM

REGISTRATION OVERVIEW

Greetings prospective Wild Tenders families! This page provides a step-by-step overview of the application and registration process for joining Wild Tenders. It includes key information about when you will hear from us as well as when we need to hear from you! Please read through this before you apply. If you have have questions, please contact sam@weavingearth.org.

STEP 1: APPLY

Completing your application requires the following two (2) actions.

STEP 1A: FILL OUT AN ONLINE APPLICATION FORM

After you’ve read through this page, fill out an online application. Please follow all instructions, including those that relate to saving your work in case of technical difficulties. Note that you must fill out a separate application for each child you are applying for.

STEP 1B: PAY THE APPLICATION FEE

When you complete each application, you will be taken to a payment screen to complete this fee. Pay the $30 application fee for each application you submit. This non-refundable processing fee is imperative to our ability to thoroughly review each and every application we receive.

Once both steps are complete, we will review your application

STEP 2: APPLICATION REVIEW

CONFIRMATION EMAIL: You will receive two automated confirmation emails: (1) an email from Weaving Earth confirming that we received your application AND (2) an email from PayPal confirming that we received your application fee. If you don’t receive these emails, check your spam folder first. If they aren’t there, something went wrong with your submission. Please email us at info@weavingearth.org for support. Please note that if you choose to mail in your application fee, you will receive the first automated email and an additional email once we’ve received your check in the mail.

REVIEW AND FOLLOW-UP: Weaving Earth staff will review your application/s within 10 business days. If any follow-up is needed, we will reach out directly to request more information or to schedule a time to talk. We are deeply committed to ensuring that Wild Tenders is a good fit for our participants, and vice versa. These follow-up conversations are typically to further explore you child’s particular needs, in order to make sure that our mentors can support them in the field.

ENROLLMENT DECISIONS: Once accepted, you will receive a welcome packet that includes additional program info and next steps to complete your registration. This welcome packet will be emailed to you, unless you indicated on your application that you would prefer a mailed packet.  If Wild Tenders does not feel like the right fit at this time, we will reach out to let you know.

STEP 3: reserve your spot(S)

Wild Tenders receives more applications and interest than we have capacity to accept. In order to reserve your spot(s) in the program, you must complete the following steps within two weeks of receiving your welcome packet. 

STEP 3A: FILL OUT A FINANCIAL AGREEMENT

Submit your Financial Agreement within two weeks of receiving your welcome packet. You can access the necessary Financial Agreement/s from our Parent Portal page — each child you are enrolling needs a separate Financial Agreement. Fill out and sign the online Financial Agreement/s to officially indicate whether you will make a one-time payment, use the WE payment plan, or seek Charter School assistance. If you receive Charter School assistance and it doesn’t cover your total Wild Tenders tuition, you can pay the remainder all at once or use the WE Payment Plan. Make sure that you read and understand the cancellation policy that is articulated in this form. You will be asked to initial and sign that you have read and fully understand the cancellation policy.

STEP 3B: Mail in your deposit

Send us a $400 deposit within two weeks of receiving your welcome packet to hold your spot. If we haven’t received your deposit within two weeks, your application will remain active and on file, but we will open the spot up to other applicants with no guarantee that there will be space for you in Wild Tenders for the year. Please note that this deposit is non-refundable. If you submit your payment and decide later, at any point, to cancel your application to Wild Tenders, we will retain the $400 deposit. This applies to all applicants regardless of the payment option you are choosing. Additional penalties apply for last-minute cancellations. Please see the cancellation policy on our financial agreement for the specific terms of these last-minute cancellations.
