We build leadership teams that pair international and local staff, resulting in diverse groups that blend an understanding of students and their needs with deep local knowledge.

Our Program Leaders have backgrounds in teaching, experiential education, service learning, psychology, wilderness training, international development, and other outdoor and educational fields. Each year, we hold in-country training sessions for both new and returning staff to ensure we maintain our standards in safety, student learning, community service, and the overall Rustic Pathways student experience. Program Leaders are incredible role models for students and, most importantly, they’re all dedicated to creating the best possible programs for students.

For me, working for Rustic Pathways has not only fulfilled my personal career goals, but it has also allowed me to fulfill personal goals—teaching the next generation of students the importance of protecting our shared humanity. The experiences I create for students have the power to rectify stereotypes and bring people of different backgrounds together. At Rustic Pathways, I don't only help youth travel but I also help to shape the future!
