CAMPUS EXPEDITION LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Interested in social entrepreneurship? Outdoor leadership?
Join OneSeed as a Campus Expedition Leader.
OneSeed Expeditions is excited to announce the launch of the Campus Expedition Leadership (CEL) Program. The goal of the CEL Program is to develop campus leaders in partnership with the OneSeed Expeditions team and mission.
Campus Expedition Leaders (CELs) serve as OneSeed’s eyes and ears on the ground. CELs build custom expedition teams and co-lead trips during our spring and summer seasons in Nepal or Chile.
CELs earn a 10% credit toward the price of their trip for every member that joins their team. With expeditions capped at 10 members, CELs that successfully build a full expedition travel for free. (International airfare is not included.)
Qualified applicants bring a combination of organizational and outdoor leadership skills. Industry experience is not required. Core CEL responsibilities include:
- Organizing and preparing an on-campus expedition team of 5-10 members
- Facilitating pre-departure communication and team-building on your campus
- Working in partnership with our experienced staff to provide guidance and support to your expedition during your time in Nepal or Chile
- Campus Expedition Leaders are responsible for their own airfare
Following the application deadline, selected applicants will be invited to interview by phone or in person.
Location and Dates
All CEL participants will co-lead expeditions in Chilean Patagonia and the Nepali Himalaya.
In addition to earning discounts on the cost of their expedition, CELs develop outdoor leadership and organizational skills throughout their time as an expedition leader. During the pre-departure period, CELs are the primary point of contact for all expedition planning and preparation. Upon arrival, CELs work closely with seasoned local guides to lead their team on the trail. Side-by-side training includes Leave No Trace ethics, expedition behavior, and outdoor leadership skills.
