Outdoor Adventure Leadership

This Outdoor Adventure Leadership Internship experience with our not-for-profit Fundación Geoversity gets you involved in our day-to-day with our GeoSchool’s Life Changer Programs.

Support conservation and communities while our multicultural staff of certified wilderness guides help you complete your internship credit components as you reconnect with nature like nowhere else in the world.

This internship is for independent persons on a leadership path seeking professional, supervised outdoor guiding and program development experiences. It has flexible start times throughout the year and allows you to easily fulfill the 40 backcountry or 250 contact hours that most colleges require for certification.

  • Coordinate expeditions through diverse and unique terrains
  • Help guide rafting trips through pristine environments
  • Contribute to Geoversity’s ongoing GIS mapping and trail network initiatives for the Mamoní Valley Preserve and indigenous territories
  • Be a role-model while leading student group activities you designed
  • Support community programs while competently and perceptively navigating the challenges and opportunities of a globalized world in a way that promotes the greater good
  • Shadow researchers to learn about the diverse ecosystems our world has to offer and apply this naturalist knowledge to create interactive guides
  • Join our team to plan, coordinate, and guide expeditions that will take you on a once-in-a-lifetime experience going from the Pacific to the Caribbean–ocean to ocean!
