This class provides students understanding of the history, global evolution, current issues, leadership skill standards, ethics and future trends in wilderness leadership. Students will pursue skill mastery in concrete leadership "hard skills" (map & compass, stove use & maintenance, group travel management, campsite selection & shelter construction, Leave No Trace (LNT), general expedition behavior) and interpersonal "soft skills"... leadership skills emphasizing group development and dynamic challenges (understanding leadership & learning styles, risk management, judgment & decision-making etc). Students will place their personal leadership skills and passion into a professional context as participants in a one week, leadership skill development focused, Outward Bound course based out of the Hurricane Island OB land program base in Newry, Maine. Course completion will offer students preferential consideration for future employment as field instructors.
