Program Overview

In a city like Vancouver, the tourism industry is growing at a fast pace, opening countless opportunities for ambassadors of our great city. This specialized education program caters to the increasingly popular tourism curricula, and allows you to tailor your field trip to your class’s specific area of focus.
Upon meeting your students in the Plaza at the Base, our experienced Educators will lead them through a program with a “behind the scenes” look at Grouse Mountain. Your group will have the unique opportunity to hear from our very own department managers, who will share their experiences, current role, upcoming trends and challenges, and particular skill set that lead them to their current position. This will be followed by a short Q&A, in which your students are encouraged to bring 2-3 prepared questions, so as to make the most of this valuable meeting.
