Adventure Leaderhsip Programs (ALP)
Leadership development at ALP occurs in environmentally based experiential learning programs. That means that we get together and do things that support the development of specific skills that are transferable to other activities and daily life.
Activities include ice breakers, teambuilding activities, hiking, group facilitation activities, travel and learning. ALP is a unique blend of activities that, grouped in certain ways can be tailored to meet group and individuals needs. Contact us for more info or to create a program for your group.
ALP Teambuilding Seminars and Certification
The Adventure Leadership Program (ALP) Seminar and Certification combines online content and a four to five hour face to face experience. It is designed to introduce members of the Auraria community to teambuilding ideas, practices and techniques.
The ALP Certification provides members of the Auraria community with opportunities to learn about teambuilding and to acquire the skills they need facilitate their own groups. ALP isintended to enrich the community by providing opportunities for developing productive work groups.
Student participants benefit additionally by opportunities for public speaking and listing the certification on their resumes.
