Want to impact the future? There is no better way than to be an Expedition Leader and guide local Montana youth in conservation service-based outdoor projects on our public lands. Everyday is a little different. Some days you'll need to be creative and others supportive, but you have a chance to be significant in a youth's life and to be remembered. Your classroom is some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Mountain West.   If you're committed and impassioned by making an impact on both the lives of youth and our public lands, then serving as a leader of a youth crew is the right position for you! 

You will lead crews with a co-leader on rotating project, working in different Montana communities to fully explore a variety of hands-on natural resource projects.  Expedition crews are often based in remote, rural communities around Montana, with crew sizes of 4-6 participants.  The youth expedition crews camp for the entire duration of their 11 day trips.
