Edge of Leadership Program Director
Ryan leads the Edge of Leadership (EOL) team, helping to develop programming and bring vital leadership skills to the youth we work with. He is an integral member of our training team who brings a rich background in the adventure field and many years of experience – he’s been in the field since 1996. “As a kid I fell in love with it.”
Ryan has a degree in adventure based Recreation Resource Management from Lyndon State College. He then spent 6 years at Hulbert Outdoor Center in Fairlee, Vt., as a School Program Instructor, climbing specialist and Assistant Director of School Programs. Ryan then spent 4 years at Project Adventure until joining us in 2010.
Ryan is also the mastermind and designer of Ubuntu Cards and Activity Guide, Monkey See Monkey Do, 52 Fathoms Cards and Blocked Perspective, all powerful tools for the adventure community. “Ryan is extremely creative and combines that with his adventure background to do amazing things,” says Jim Grout. “He is a quiet powerhouse in our field and we’re fortunate to have him.”
