Alumni Association

Traveling with us was just the beginning. As a Rustic Alum, you have unique experiences that will forever impact how you view and interact with the world. The time that you spent with us has given you a permanent place in our global family. Welcome to the Rustic Pathways Alumni Association!

Who is this for?

Students and former students, who want to continue to have an impact, stay in touch, and engage in communities near and far. Through the Alumni Association you’ll have access to exclusive internship and job opportunities, will be invited to alumni-only events, and can have a say in how we spread the Rustic energy. Read on to learn about our different alumni opportunities!

International Development and Fundraising

Specifically designed for students who want to stay involved in international development and community service, Impact Ambassadors engage in 1-on-1 support from staff to host fundraising events, stay involved in global communities, and receive mentoring to elevate their personal passion projects—all while raising money to increase their global impact and building valuable personal and professional skills.

Join the Rustic Squad

This is more than a brand ambassador program. This is for the students that live and breathe Rustic. Squad members receive cool swag when they are accepted, and gain an amazing community of super engaged, go-getter, like-minded students. It is our expectation that Squad members stay active in the Facebook group, participate in focus groups, attend public speaking opportunities and local events, take advantage of mentorship with regional staff, and build a deeper connection with the larger Rustic community. Squad members are positive change-makers who act as a voice for Rustic Pathways in their community. Sound fun? We think so, apply now!
The application join the Rustic Squad is now closed. If you have any questions, reach out to Rachel at [email protected].
