High School Leaders

As a High School Leader for Outdoor Lab, students help teach sixth-graders about ecosystems, archery, sustainability, and site history in an awe-inspiring outdoor classroom. High School Leaders also serve as role models throughout the week while they assist sixth grade students as they're learning about themselves and their fellow human beings. High School Leaders are emotionally mature, use good judgment, and demonstrate a respect for children and learning.
