The purpose of the JENE Fellowship is to teach essential wilderness survival skills and educational philosophy to aspiring outdoor educators. Jene fellows also learn from industry experts in Ropes/Challenge course facilitation and professional wranglers in Horsemanship 101.

In the afternoon, fellows spend their time learning from experts in the fields of wilderness skills and agriculture, Horsemanship, and Ropes/ Challenge course.
