About the job
The High Sierra Instructor carries out the mission of Outward Bound with students in the field. Instructors work on a seasonal basis under the supervision of Lead Instructors or Course Directors. They supervise, teach, and facilitate meaningful experiences for students in a backcountry context. High Sierra courses include backpacking and/or rock climbing. Instructors in the High Sierra program deliver a variety of programs, ranging from 4-65 days. These programs and expeditions focus on leadership, service, and character development, and take students into new and challenging outdoor environments.
Outward Bound California (OBCA) is a non-profit that uses challenging experiences in outdoor settings to create social-emotional learning opportunities for our students, aged 12+ (including adults). OBCA is committed to increasing access for those that have traditionally been excluded from outdoor spaces. We do this, in part, through our 40+ community partnerships and by offering partial or full scholarships to over 2/3 of our students. We are committed to reflecting the diverse communities with whom we work and strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQ+ identifying folks, and women to apply.
