The team is always growing here at BRLC.
Meet a few folks on our team!
NATALIE MINNICH - Program Coordinator
Why are you excited to be a BRLC facilitator: There is something about being outside in nature, and seeing a group bond with one another. The experience as a facilitator, the outside perspective, has it moments of reminders. I get to see people become humble, support friends, laugh, be in the moment, and learn. I find that these are held to the most value in my life as well.
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.
