NOLS Internships

Internships at NOLS are opportunities for people interested in the outdoor industry to learn about the operational responsibilities of an outdoor school. NOLS graduates are preferred and college credit may be available.

The National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) is a private, nonprofit, educational institution. Our international headquarters is located in Lander, Wyoming. We have locations around the world and educate over 20,000 students a year.

NOLS' mission is to be the leading source and teacher of wilderness skills and leadership that serve people and the environment. NOLS students enroll for a variety of personal goals, from skill development to wilderness appreciation to leadership development. NOLS attracts the best professional staff interested in teaching wilderness skills and leadership, and in the management and operation of outdoor education programs.

We are proud to introduce you to NOLS and sincerely hope you consider working with us. In the field and in town, we emphasize good "expedition behavior" where we treat each other with respect, honesty and support.
