Ahlberg Leadership Institute


The Ahlberg Leadership Institute stands at the heart of Outdoor Education at CC, providing courses and leadership experience to those interested in leading trips through Outdoor Education.  Driven by students and supported by professional staff, the ALI offers intentional experiences that incorporate peer-to-peer learning, mentorship, experiential education and reflection.


The ALI consists of five leader tacks allowing leaders to specialize in certain activities such as backcountry travel, skiing, climbing, rafting and kayaking.  Within the tracks, there are multiple levels of certification (ranging from Assistant Leader to Leader Trainer), achieved by completing designated courses and experiences. Each certification enables a leader to lead certain types and lengths of trips.
