Find your leadership style in the Himalaya
Leave behind the tourist traps and head to the remote corners of northwest India to learn about leadership and yourself. Hike deep into the Himalaya and visit places where animal-powered farming is a way of life. Drink spiced cups of chai and challenge yourself on long hikes. Hear the River Kali roar as you and your group learn about teamwork and whitewater rafting. Live with an Indian family and grow your cultural awareness with daily classes in ecology and history. Spending a semester in India means you’ll have more opportunities to grow and gain a deeper understanding of this place. You’ll spend most of your time camping, but don’t worry about starting as an expert—you and your group will learn everything you need to know as you go.
Your semester won’t only be about learning outdoor skills. You’ll also practice leadership every day. With your team, you’ll learn by doing—about communication, making decisions, and teamwork. You’ll dive deep into the aspects of your own leadership style. Take your chance to see this a part of the world from a personal perspective. Push your comfort zone. Get lost in the Himalaya and find your way out again. You’ll go home with experiences that will prepare you to be a leader for the rest of your life.
