HMI Gap: How to follow the adventures of the Andes Leadership Semester

We are excited that you are interested in following along with the adventures of our inaugural Andes Leadership Semester. 

You can expect to be updated on the progress of this semester every 2-3 weeks as much of the time students will be in remote settings with limited access to connectivity. 

Since this program is being run in collaboration with Where There Be Dragons we will be posting a link out to their family communication platform, Yak Board, each time we receive an update. 

After the group completed their first two week backpacking expedition in Parque Patagonia National Park one participant wrote a creative piece on the “Ten Inherent Rights of Mountains.”

If you would like to be updated every time we post a new blog please let us know by emailing
