The team is always growing here at BRLC.
Meet a few folks on our team!
Welcome our new Assistant Director of Programs, Zach Hunter!
Tell us about yourself: Boone has been home for the past 5 years while attending Appalachian State University and continues now, as a graduate. Outdoor experiential education has been my primary focus for those years and I have shared my learning with students via Outdoor Programs, Mountain Alliance, Colorado Outward Bound School, and other outdoor education programs.
Why are you excited to be a BRLC facilitator: I get to learn and work with amazing people, those I meet the day of a program and colleagues I have known for years. Working with people who allow their genuine selves to share the learning is an amazing feeling and keeps me psyched!
ALLAN JOHNSON - Lead Facilitator
Why you are excited to be a BRLC facilitator? Outdoor experiential education offers incredible opportunities for personal growth and group-building. Opportunities to facilitate these kind of experiences for people of all ages are a dream come true for me.
Memorable programming moment or experience you have had:
1) On more than one occasion, I have seen groups cheer & congratulate one of their members who overcame their fear, made it to the Challenge Tower zip platform and chose to climb back down rather than zip out. To affirm a team member for staying true to themselves and their own boundaries, even when everyone else in the group is making a different choice, is a priceless gift.
2) Hearing “I’m proud of you for what you did today”, father to son, daughter to mother, sister to brother, leader to group member, peer to peer… is a HUGE payoff for facilitators.
