Due to Northern Tier not opening until July 1st, Work Week for this spring is canceled. We hope to offer a new date in the fall.
There are a lot of upcoming challenges for Northern Tier. We ask that alumni visit only if specific advance arrangements have been made.
Alumni Work Week: Join us to give back and have fun!
This is your chance to support the Northern Tier programs. You'll earn a “sweat-equity” polo shirt and enjoy camaraderie with your fellow alumni while giving back. A win-win proposition!
The upcoming “Work Week” is May 25th to June 7th. We can use help for a day or a week, so come as early and stay as late as you can! Bring your skills and enthusiasm; we will provide on-the-job training and tools. As a bonus, you can take part in training week activities as your interest and time permit.
This year there are a few new changes in the requirements to volunteer. To attend you must complete “Youth Protection Training” before arriving. You must also bring an “Annual Health and Medical Record” form. An annual medical exam is required if staying more than 72 hours. See this post for details.
The seminar day is on Thursday, June 4th. During the seminar day, members donate their time by presenting seminars to seasonal staff. It provides staff additional education in outdoor and guiding skills. Past seminars covered topics including route planning, storm-proofing, plant identification, geology, trail baking, fishing, birding, shore lunch skills, history, ecology, astronomy, and weather. Register if you have any expertise to share during this day.
We hope to hear from you!
Please contact us if you have questions.
