Immerse yourself in global leadership development and see first-hand how Rustic Pathways creates transformational global programs around the world. This program drops you into a front-row seat to experience how Rustic Pathways creates and leads transformational global experiences. Start the program with a deep field immersion to meet with local community leaders, hear from NGOs and development organizations, and interview individuals in their own home community. During the second week, learn the Rustic Pathways leadership philosophy and dive into the world-class training our program leaders receive. You’ll also meet one-on-one with a leadership coach during the second week to develop an individual leadership plan. Collaborate with students in your leadership cohort to design the perfect travel experience to best attract other students to support your community service project. You’ll be in the driver’s seat to make real change, as Rustic Pathways will select at least two of the most impactful programs and actually run them. Students from those selected programs will be invited back as program leaders in training the following year.
