Ascend Travel Service Expedition Leadership

Expedition leadership is an amazing experience. It is also hard work! Leaders coordinate with Ascend Travel staff, endeavor to meet the expedition group's travel needs/desires, train and empower team leaders, follow up and pick up the pieces left undone, keep the budget in check, implement appropriate procedures and accomplish mission objectives. At the same time you maintain your composure, sense of humor, compassion and fun! We provide you all the tools you need to recruit, train, manage and follow-up with your expedition team and as an added bonus - you can fundraise for your own trip expenses! We take care of all marketing materials, internet-based registration and payment, and information inquiries - leaving the busywork to us and the fun stuff for you.
