We're hiring for multiple positions out of our High Sierra Field location for Summer 2022!
The High Sierra Instructor (I) carries out the mission of Outward Bound with students in the field. Instructors work on a seasonal basis under the direct supervision of Lead Instructors or Course Directors. They supervise, teach, and facilitate meaningful experiences for students in the field throughout the course. High Sierra courses include backpacking, rock climbing, and/or mountaineering activities. Instructors in the High Sierra program deliver a variety of engaging 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.
The High Sierra logistics staff team attends to the big and small details to ensure smooth, uninterrupted program operations. The Logistics Coordinator (LC) is a crucial member of that team, and works under the direct supervision of the Associate Logistics Manager. This position is perfect for the detail-oriented individual who enjoys feeding people, seeing projects through to a thorough and timely completion, and making things happen behind the scenes. The Logistics Coordinator directly manages the equipment, food, and transportation for courses 5-65 days in length.
The High Sierra Internship is a hand-ons introduction to the Outward Bound educational model through all lenses of the organization. Interns are supervised directly by a High Sierra Program Manager.

Between 2-4 weeks of their time will be spent in the field in an observational and mentored capacity, working directly with students. Additionally, 1-3 weeks will be spent in the world of the Logistics Coordinator, orchestrating all logistical needs to support courses.
