“The mentorship and community are tight-knit, and the OELT program really shaped me. The networking is phenomenal, too — the faculty help you get to where you want to go.”John Willard
“You get so much experience outside. It’s hard to learn how to be a leader outside unless you’re doing it and learning how to make decisions under adverse conditions. I feel like I’m ready to take on any outdoor job — which Lyndon has completely prepared me for.”Marie Vaine
