Stretch your limits and teach in the outdoors

You’ll be challenged to experiment with new teaching styles and the physical and mental challenges of living in the outdoors. You’ll work on developing your unique leadership style and using it to serve your group. By the end of this course, you’ll grow close to a group of peers who share your goals and passion for education.
