D4LC Orienteers are key members of The Leadership Center staff.  Once trained, Orienteers are placed in leadership roles during our D4LC: Explore Conferences.  They lead groups in our conference communities, educate students in leadership development, and serve as role models to ‘Explore’ participants.  A D4LC Orienteer is our version of the traditional “camp counselor”. 

The Orienteer Program is more akin to an internship than a summer job.  We seek out young adults (18-20) who are interested in leading, teaching, and growing in a community.  Maturity, integrity, and high moral character are required. Here is the application: orienteer-application Deadline is June 1, 2018.
