Service Learning & Filmmaking

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Jenna majored in Journalism and Spanish at the University of Denver and has since done seasonal work guiding service adventure programs for high schoolers in the summers and teaching kids snowboarding in the winters. She was fortunate to participate in a couple of programs similar to VISIONS in high school, one getting scuba certified in Hawaii, and another turtle conservation program in Costa Rica. Upon graduating, she knew she wanted to work as a leader and has guided two summers in the Dominican Republic, one with VISIONS in Peru in 2018, and another in Ecuador last year. 

Travel is a huge part of her life and something she strives to encourage and make more accessible to youth. She taught English to second graders in Thailand for a year and is always seeking opportunities for adventure and to learn from other cultures. She is thrilled that VISIONS is continuing programs in Montana and can’t wait to learn more about sustainable agriculture. 
 
She hopes to pursue a career in documentary filmmaking and will be collaborating with other leaders and participants on a project this upcoming summer. In her free time, she enjoys everything outdoors, cooking, reading, and yoga.
