Immediate Supervisor: Rocky Mountain Program Manager
Location: Canmore, AB
Start date: March-April 2021
Employment Type: Full-Time Fixed Term Contract (6-8 month contract)
Outward Bound Canada is committed to helping Canadian youth change the trajectory of their lives. With young people desiring to thrive in an unpredictable and changing world, OBC, a registered charity, offers social-emotional education through experiential adventures in the outdoors. Since 1969, OBC has inspired over 150,000 participants, with a particular emphasis on providing greater access to those facing socioeconomic barriers, to discover their potential. These experiences develop resilience, social and emotional intelligence, and environmental leadership to contribute to a better, more compassionate, and resilient society. The impact of our work on young people in Canada is found in our recent case for support.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Outward Bound Canada has prioritized the health and wellbeing of our employees, participants and the wider community. As of August 2020, we resumed some of our programs and implemented new COVID-19 Field Procedures to prioritize the health and safety of staff and participants. We are looking forward to a renewed connection with youth in nature in 2021.
ABOUT THE POSITION
OBC Rockies courses are multi-day/weeks wilderness trips that teach our core curriculum through outdoor skills (Backpacking, Snowshoeing and Canoeing). We look for experienced outdoor educators who are growth-oriented and passionate about teaching. The wilderness environments OBC Rockies' courses travel through are remote, dynamic, and physically and emotionally challenging. These environments, along with the educational activities, require instructors to be fully committed to, hard-work, responsibility of the whole group, working effectively with their peers and leading students positively to achieve the course goals. The goal of this position is to maintain the successful candidate in the field leading expeditions but as the COVID era presents high uncertainty, this position may help with the region's administration and operation should any field course get canceled.
