Overland Summers – Student Leadership Opportunity

Imagine a summer of adventure, commitment, and community.

40 itineraries, 12 countries, 3 continents: that’s a lot of adventure. But leading at Overland isn’t really about where you go, and in some important ways, it’s not really about what you do. Instead, leading for Overland is about the people who surround you — the dynamic leaders you work with and the great kids you lead — and the many challenges, both big and small, that you tackle together.

An Overland leader’s commitments are many, but nothing is as important as your co-leader and your kids. No matter where you are, no matter what you’re doing, your most important commitment is the health and well-being of those around you. This commitment drives and informs your leadership every moment of every day.

The Overland community is supportive, wholesome, and empowering. In all we do, we seek to create a culture of respect. We welcome students and leaders from across the country and around the world, we seek to offer broad access to our trips through our Open Arms scholarship program, and we value a range of life experiences and perspectives in our leadership staff.


In the hopes of expanding access to our leading opportunities to BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and/or low-income students, we’ve started a new initiative for the summer of 2022: the Open Arms Leader Fellowship provides a more comprehensive financial employment package as a way to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion among our leader staff.

How It Works:

  • The Fellowship is available to leaders who self-identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, from a low-income background, and/or other marginalized identities.
  •  The Fellowship includes up to $1,000 in additional financial support separate from base- compensation
