A Little About Me…

Larry specializes in use of adventure education methods for team, leadership and community development primarily with schools, school districts and non-profit organizations. His clients include small and large public school systems and universities, US-based and international independent schools, and experience-based training organizations. He is passionate about supporting behavioral change among faculties and applying adventure for enhancing and integrating social emotional learning initiatives. Larry has worked in the fields of Adventure and Experiential Education for 30 years and with Project Adventure since 2006. Previously he was a program director at Outward Bound advancing initiatives with the Boston Public Schools. He entered Education/Training from the field of Humanitarian Aid and Development where he applied experiential approaches for community development, human rights advocacy and non-formal education in Mali and Burkina Faso. In 1985 he co-founded Association Tassaght www.tassaght.org which today is the the largest national NGO in Mali. Living in Cambridge, Mass with his wife Alice he has enjoyed testing new activities on his 2 boys (who have since fled the nest), serving on a local environmental organization board, writing publicly on controversial social issues, and disappearing when he can into the wilderness.
