Our Pathfinder expeditions are designed for young adults who are searching for direction.  These 30-day expeditions help students explore their strengths and values, identify future goals and create an action plan for the future. Throughout the course, you’ll participate in life coaching sessions and structured goal-setting activities that help clarify priorities, strengthen character and define a new, self-directed path.
