The FGL Leadership Training
Administered by the National Outdoor Leadership School
Our 20-day field-based leadership expedition teaches technical outdoor skills in the challenging setting of Wyoming’s Wind River Range. The program is designed to develop Leadership and Long-lasting Bonds among our incoming fellows.
Fellows build resilience by mastering wilderness skills as they backpack together through rugged terrain in unpredictable weather conditions. Each day presents tremendous physical, intellectual, and emotional challenges. Not only will Fellows hike off-trail, up and down steep terrain, and cross icy rivers, but they will adapt to life without modern commodities while leading an internationally diverse team.
Fellows will leave the expedition with a renewed sense of confidence and competence in skills such as:
- Self-awareness and Expedition behavior
- Tolerance for Adversity and Uncertainty
- Risk Assessment and Decision-Making
- Vision and Action
The FGL Leadership Expedition is designed for exceptionally courageous future leaders who are willing to expand their physical and mental capabilities. The expedition is the challenge of a lifetime!
