As a Wilderness Staff, each individual acts as an integral member of a teen therapy team, consisting of a combination of Field Guides and Associate Therapist. A team of two to four Wilderness Staff Members, work together on each shift, under the direction of a licensed Primary Therapist.
Field Guides are responsible for providing a safe and inviting experience that integrates wilderness skills with therapeutic goals for up to nine students. Associate Therapists take on the additional responsibilities of working with students on building clinical skills, facilitating psycho-educational workshops, and crisis interventions that may arise in the groups. The result is a truly unique outdoor employment experience.
Work schedules consist of an eight-day shift, lasting from Wednesday to Wednesday, with the following six days off. Outback Therapeutic Expeditions outdoor jobs offer competitive pay, insurance coverage, and a variety of growth opportunities.
Please email your resume to our Field Recruiter and include three work references. If you have work or volunteer experience with youth ages 13 – 17 please make that explicitly clear in your resume and include estimated number of hours worked.
