Gateway Partner Program

Over the years, NOLS has partnered with a variety of extraordinary organizations across the country, through the Gateway Partner Program to engage exceptional youth in NOLS expeditions. As a student within the Gateway Partner Program, you will have the opportunity to develop deep and meaningful relationships with your peers and instructors, thus creating a welcoming and supportive environment for you to learn and grow in. You will become a seasoned wilderness traveler, learning how to read maps, navigate off trail, cook backcountry meals, and step into various leadership roles.These expeditions provide invaluable opportunities to refresh and recharge in awe-inspiring wilderness settings, sleep under the stars, and enhance your outdoor skills while challenging you to grow as a leader and problem solver.

NOLS Gateway Partner Program graduates are now leading others in industries from conservation to software development. Where will you take your NOLS experience?
