Expedition Description

This expedition is open only to participants who are No Barriers Warriors Alumni and have completed their expedition. Attending the No Barriers Summit is not a qualifying expedition for applying to this expedition.

Applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Progress toward completing your No Barriers Pledge
  • Involvement in the No Barriers community
  • Demonstrating how you are living a No Barriers Life
  • Physical ability to complete the expedition
  • Demonstrated ability to interact and work well with other

This is a three event series for Warriors alumni. During the on-boarding portion of the experience, the team will re-engage with the No Barriers Life through our innovative online curriculum.

The team will come together in person for the first time in June, for training at the 2019 No Barriers Summit at North Lake Tahoe, California. There they will develop a strong team dynamic and prepare physically for the expedition to come.

Following the Summit, the team will remain connected online and focused as they dive into the No Barriers Life, through a series of interactive, reflective activities designed to explore the No Barriers Life.

In September, the team will journey to Mt. Baker in the Northwest, with an attempt to summit on 9/11.

During the meaningful engagement portion of the opportunity post-expedition, the team will gather in San Diego, California for a developmental session, where they will work on the goals they set during the expedition. Alumni will be selected based on several criteria including but not limited to: work towards their previous pledge, how they have elevated post expedition, and their efforts to contribute to their communities.

Due to the high number of interested alumni, please understand that we are not able to accommodate all who apply. Continue to check the No Barriers Warriors website and follow us social media to learn other opportunities to participate in the Warriors Community.
