Leadership Week

The sum is greater than the parts. This is what we have alluded to each time we describe Leadership Week to friends and family. It's a climbing meet-up here, a movie viewing there, a store discount way over there. But the beauty of this week shines through when looking at the map. We can see the NOLS community-at-large this way. NOLS grads and employees do this stuff every week anyway, Leadership Week is simply a time when we choose to document and celebrate it. - William and Kary

P.S. We got our hands on some Deuter/NOLS backpacks and want to award them as prizes for folks who are the most involved. We are watching you leaders, with high powered binoculars, and satellite imagery. (Actually we need you to send in photos and videos or we don't really know how awesome you are!)


We asked alumni to step up in their communities, and have they ever. From climbing meet-ups, to river clean-ups, to working with schools, grads have shown their NOLS colors and have taken the lead in their communities. Here is what grads are doing today, join them if you are in the area:
