Details about Being A part of Trips

A full description of the role, responsibilities, and expectations of First-Year Trips volunteers can be found on the application page. However, if you're unsure or have questions about applying, please contact us! Anyone can be apply to be a First-Year Trip Leader or on a Croo, regardless of background, experience, or ability. We will provide you with all the training and gear that you need, and we'll make sure that if selected, you're placed in a role in which you feel comfortable and confident.

The main role of the Trip Leader is not to be an outdoors guide - it is to be your most authentic self, be a supportive and empowering mentor to incoming students, and to create space for you and your Trip to have an impactful experience. While many First-Year Trips take place outdoors, during selection applications are read blindly and are not graded or ranked based on outdoor experience. Whatever your experience, if you're excited to be an important part of incoming students' transitions, you are encouraged to apply!
