Kourtney de la Cruz has a B.A. in both elementary education and Spanish from The College of New Jersey, is a certified teacher, and Red Cross certified Lifeguard. As UrbanTrekkers’ Assistant Director of Experiential Learning, Kourtney assists in designing outdoor expeditions and our experiential learning curriculum. She joined the UrbanTrekkers team in 2015, after serving for several years with UrbanPromise Honduras. Her passion is to equip young leaders in the local community through positive relationships. It is a great joy for her to see teenagers grow as they push their own limits in outdoor expeditions, coming to the realization that they can accomplish much more than they had once thought, and then transferring that to their lives "back home".
