Love the outdoors? Seeking an exciting, leadership-oriented summer opportunity? Overland hires college students and recent graduates to lead eight weeks of hiking, biking, language, and service trips across the country and around the world.

Whether you’re backpacking in the Swiss Alps, restoring trails in Alaska, learning French in Chamonix, or biking down the coast of California, the mission is the same: we offer carefully crafted and superbly led trips that catalyze in students an understanding of the world beyond themselves, beyond their own needs and wants, and inspire them to see how beautiful and exciting, how full of promise the world is.

We look for college first years, sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduates with a strong desire to work with young people, extensive leadership experience, excellent judgment, superb problem solving skills, success working in team settings and leading with others, patience, humor and the determination and stamina to succeed in a challenging environment. The Overland community is supportive, wholesome and inclusive, and we seek individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, interests and perspectives.
