Outdoor Adventure Ambassadors
Each year, Outdoor Adventures takes hundreds of students on excursions around Tennessee and the surrounding states. From the river beds of Savage Gulf to the caves of East Tennessee to the rocky bluffs of Alabama to the hilltops of Indiana, our Outdoor Adventure staff crafts a schedule of events and excursions that are sure to excite, refresh, and push participants to new levels.
Are you already connected with the program, just transferred to campus, or looking for others with similar interests? The Outdoor Ambassadors program may be just what you are looking for to take your involvement to the next level. We are looking for upperclassmen with experience, knowledge, and some level of expertise in areas of outdoor adventure to act as student leaders alongside our Outdoor Adventure staff for our trips throughout the year. Do you hike, backpack, climb, raft, backcountry camp, kayak, ski/snowboard, etc.? We want to hear from you.
This is a volunteer opportunity to serve your peers in a leadership position, allowing you to grow your technical skills, your leadership skills, and your relationships, all while having a blast in God's creation. There is a limited number of positions, and students chosen for these roles will play a large role in the planning and execution of their experience-specific event, as well as have the opportunity to attend additional trips within the normal schedule (excluding Spring Break and Summer Excursion) free of charge. Not enough? Ambassadors will also have the opportunity to have up to 50% of the cost of Summer Excursion paid for, should they meet the eligibility requirements and choose to attend.
If you are an upperclassman (Junior or Senior), have experience in an applicable area, and have interest in this program, please fill out the below form. We will reach out to you to set up an interview, and talk about what opportunities may be open for you. Freshmen and Sophomores may also apply, and will be considered if open spaces and experience match.
