Mentorship Program

ALI - Mentorship Program




The ALI Mentorship Program is designed to provide opportunities for students to immerse themselves in continued learning and development of their technical and leadership skills through mentorship with Outdoor Education Professional Staff. Mentees will work specifically with a professional staff member in order to create a unique action plan designed around the mentees’ goals. 

This 2-3 block program will consist of meetings, workshops/clinics, and off campus trips. 

Students will be able to apply for the program through an on-going application on Summit where they will express their interest, general goals, and expectations of why they want to be in this program.
