Explore the remote and rugged North Cascade Range as you turn your passion for education in the outdoors into a skill you can use to foster a love of learning in others. On this course, you'll get a variety of skills—education, backpacking, mountaineering, and rock climbing—and experience a variety of terrain, from forests to glaciers to alpine rock.
Your course begins with a multi-day leadership and facilitation seminar. This portion of the course will cover facilitation and debriefing techniques, creating an inclusive and positive learning environment, honing your individual leadership style, and learning effective teaching techniques. After that, you'll head into the mountains. As you hone your climbing skills, you might even venture beyond the northern Cascades into Canada in search of new challenges.
If you’re seeking to develop the abilities and experience to pursue a career in outdoor education, then this is the course for you.
