August Wilderness gives incoming first-year students the opportunity to begin their Earlham education with a backcountry wilderness adventure that promotes introspection and personal development during this highly transitional point in their lives. The Mountain program takes students to the Uinta Mountains in Utah and involves backpacking in elevations ranging from 8,000 - 13,000 feet. This trip is led by student and faculty instructors who aim to facilitate an experience that encourages growth, self-discovery, and learning. Participants can earn three academic credits. The course fee is $1,900 (deposit of $250 reserves your place, and financial aid is available to those who qualify and apply by June 1, 2018). Applications will be accepted from March 1, 2018 until June 1, 2018.
PLACE (Perspectives on Living and Community Engagement) invites incoming first-year students to explore Richmond, Indiana, and the surrounding region to better understand the local community and envision their place within it. This experience is led by faculty and student instructors who understand and appreciate the relationship between Earlham College and the local community. This program carries no academic credit.

Peace Corps Prep: International Civic Engagement provides rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors already enrolled in the Peace Corps Prep Program with a core course in intercultural competence. By preparing a feasibility study for a development project in our own community, Peace Corps Prep students will build capacity to shift perspective and behavior around relevant cultural differences, as well as reflect upon ourselves in relation to others. This program will take place both on Earlham’s campus and in and around the community of Richmond, Indiana. Applications will be accepted from February 27, 2018 until April 22, 2018.
