Project Great Outdoors is seeking applicants for our spring guide training, April 3-4 & April 10-18, 2010.
Participants in this 11 day program will learn the fundamental hard, soft and meta skills required to guide an inflatable raft on a class III river like the South Fork of the American River. The training is offered as a "shared-cost" experience and financial aid is available for deserving candidates. The $450 fee includes camping, all meals, all equipment and instruction for 11 days. In return for this training, we ask that participants volunteer a day or two (or as many as possible!) guiding our program trips, which are offered to under-served youth in Northern California for as little as $15 per participant. We seek like-minded individuals with experience in working with young people, facilitation and outdoor leadership. No river running experience is required!
Project GO was founded by three river-guides in 2000, and since then has provided low-cost experiential adventures to nearly 2200 deserving young people. The mission of Project GO is to guide youth towards broader perspectives and self-discovery through adventures in the great outdoors. Visit our website (projectgo) for more infomation.
