Felix Ventures Foundation Internship

 

 

The Felix Ventures Foundation was established in 1999 with the goal to enrich, expose, and inspire students to do better in all aspects of their lives. We have been pursuing these goals by providing outdoor experiences that allow students to develop skills in leadership, organization, goal-setting, and collaboration, among many others. Our program, through the years, has developed an extensive list of free activities and outings for all students. Our activities now include car camping, backpacking, high adventure outings, community service, cultural exposure, college guidance, and campus tours. Our year-round program focuses and prides itself on being student-run. We teach by providing experiences and opportunities for students to develop self-confidence, self-reliance, and motivation. We use our trips as tools to encourage our members to strive for better, push harder, and reach their personal goals and dreams.

 

The internship at Felix Ventures Foundation is very unique. Our outdoor aspect of the program requires applicants to have intellectual flexibility to solve the problem and make decisions that may affect the entire outcome of the trip. The applicant must be willing and able to multitask and make changes when necessary at any given time. This internship will require the intern to participate in at least one event/ trip. The events/trips are free of cost, we provide breakfast and dinner as well as all gear needed. We highly recommend that interns participate as much as possible in all our events and trips. All gas expenses will be reimbursed and all accommodations for overnight trips will be provided. The following is a list of requirements and duties for this internship:
