Alumni Association

Since 1979 Guided Discoveries has been in the business of making a difference in the lives of children.  Throughout those 30-plus years we have found that our staff have been just as positively affected as our campers and students.  We have heard a job at a Guided Discoveries facility being described as a life experience rather than just a job.  Many lifelong relationships have had their start at one of our sites.  Guided Discoveries would like to foster those friendships and connections through our Alumni Association.

Currently the GDI Alumni Association hosts an Alumni Weekend every other Labor Day weekend in Toyon Bay.   Please sign up for the Alumni Association and join one of our Linked In groups to receive updates.


Our goal for our GDI Alumni Association is to build a framework and network to keep our past staff and campers connected. We have formed two groups on Linked In to help facility that goal. Linked In is where we will share upcoming events, communicate open positions, and share best practices. Our hope is that you will do the same. CLICK HERE TO JOIN A GROUP.


We'd like to keep in touch.  Receiving GDI Alumni news keeps us and the GDI community  up to date on how you are doing.  We encourage submissions explaining how your time living and working at a GDI facility may have helped you in the real world or finding that dream job.  Alumni news is a great way to show current and future staff how the knowledge, skills, abilities, and connections gained at your GDI facility have been applied to everyday life.

The next GDI Staff Alumni Weekend is scheduled for Labor Day weekend August 31 - September 2, 2019.   All staff and families from any facility, from all of our 40 years are invited.  We will snorkel, SCUBA, rock climb, visit labs, dance, sing and enjoy good food.  More information to come in 2018!
