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 Field 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 Field 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 a nine and a half day shift that begins with an all day training on Mondays. Guides begin working within the student groups on Tuesdays and complete their shift on the following Wednesday. outBACK has incorporated an innovative staffing schedule that provides each shift to have eleven and a half days off between shifts. outBACK Therapeutic Expeditions outdoor jobs offer competitive pay, insurance coverage, and a variety of growth opportunities.
