Want to impact the future? There is no better way than to be an Expedition Leader and guiding 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... well it 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! 

Lead crews with a co-leader for month long projects, working intensively in one community to fully explore a variety of hands-on natural resource projects.  Expedition crews are based in remote, rural communities around Montana, with crew sizes of 5-8 participants.  The youth participants typically camp much of the time. 

*The 'Roving' Expedition Leader will provide in-field support for leaders and crews, both through day and overnight trips to check-in on crews and by filling in for longer periods as a leader due to unforeseen circumstances. Support could be logistical, in response to an incident or general technical crew support.
