Find your leadership style in the Andes
Leave the ordinary behind on the Semester in Patagonia. Climb into the mountains and listen to the wind blow through the cliffs. Taste the salty breeze as you paddle your kayak along the coast. Breathe in the smell of mate while passing by a poblador’s ranch. This course takes you mountaineering and sea kayaking in the Andes mountains of Chile, but you’ll walk away with more than advanced outdoor skills. You’ll spend a semester practicing leadership every day. You’ll meet new challenges with your group and practice teamwork and decision making. You’ll also learn about other ways of life as you explore this unique part of Chile.
On this course, you won’t be a tourist. This course is about going deep into the land and yourself. Living in a remote place in community with other people. It’s a way to grow in leadership and awareness of the world, things you’ll remember for the rest of your life. You probably won’t describe this course as “easy” when you get home. But you’ll learn that you can meet challenges you never dreamed about.
