Outdoor Educators Institute Cohort 2017

The Outdoor Educators Institute (OEI) is a 3-month long professional development program for young adults, ages 18-24, with an active interest in the outdoor leadership. OEI graduates receive training in wilderness backpacking, sea kayaking, rock climbing, outdoor facilitation, group management, and conservation skills, and are supported to get placed in outdoor employment at the end of the program.

We are proud to introduce the 18 members of the 2017 Outdoor Educators Institute Cohort!
