I was a total wimp when I was a kid. Despite many opportunities to do ropes courses and other similar challenges, I always sat on the sidelines. To be completely honest, it was because I was chubby and figured that I couldn’t actually complete the courses. I’m now more adventurous, but I still prefer adventure with a functional goal (like climbing down into a gorge to go fly fishing). Project Adventure is a Beverly, MA non-profit organization that offers adventure with a goal, but it’s all about personal and group development. They “seek to expand Adventure-based experiential programming, with the goal of developing responsible individuals, productive organizations and sustainable communities.” They’ve been doing it since 1971, and they keep growing their ability to advance active learning.
Chances are that at some point in your life you’ve engaged in something similar to what Project Adventure offers. It may have been with school, a church group, camp, work, or a sports team. Project Adventure serves an extremely diverse group of people. What I think is most interesting about their approach is that it’s based on a specific methodology that “consists of activities and experiences designed to appropriately challenge individuals and groups in ways that accelerate learning.” They’re scientific about this stuff to the point that they have published research on the topic of active learning. I think that’s really cool, and it’s why you need to take a look at Project Adventure’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Client Services Representative, a Youth and College Program Specialist, and Adventure Facilitators for Youth for the Northeast Region. Take a look and see if any of these positions seem like an adventure that you want to take on.
