There’s no more perfect place to build outdoor leadership skills than northern Vermont and New Hampshire’s mountains.

Our students also develop knowledge of related topics, including the environment, business, law, and psychology. You'll gain diverse leadership and business skills to work in settings ranging from ski resorts and schools to wilderness areas and ropes courses.
