NOLS is an organization with heart. It’s filled with people committed to preparing others for leadership. We have the expertise across wilderness medicine, risk management, and expeditions to support powerful, authentic experiences. And we have wildness in our bones. Our wildness comes from exploring wilderness, learning how to manage challenging medical emergencies, and figuring out ways to help groups and organizations achieve their goals.
Working at NOLS means working to extend the invitation to the wilderness to anyone. Join our community and help us move our mission forward.
