So what do we look for in a Boundless candidate? Possess one of the following areas of expertise and you’re a stand-out. Step up with two and you’re spectacular. Come to the table with all three and you’re a superhero.
The Outdoor Focus
About 75% of our program is in the outdoors, so if you’re feeling chills just reading this, stop reading now.
In the spring and summer, we embrace white water adventure and deliver the type of education you’ll feel in your bones. The rest of the year, we do even more outdoors.
Those that specialize in the outdoor focus are often certified teachers, but just as often have solid experience in recreation, especially camps and canoe tripping programs.
Having experience working with teens is also a huge asset.
The Teaching Focus:
Beyond hiring teachers who are detail focsued (you should’ve spotted that typo), we hire certified teachers who can teach compulsory curricula like English or History and have a flair for an experiential approach.
Yet the capacity to teach high school curriculum isn’t sufficient. There must be some acumen in the outdoors, physical fitness and adeptness with teens.
In the Spring and Summer, we run 5-13 day adventure programs for high school credits. In the Fall and Winter, we deliver an adventure-based boarding school for teens.
The Counselling Focus:
Look, to counsel teens, you’re going to need………………… patience.
BSWs, MSWs, CYWs and other people with a history of working in adolescent mental health are suitable candidates. We have left this section rather vague. Full-time positions may be available from time to time.
If you’re still reading, you may just be the type of relentless candidate we’re after. Click here for the next phase of your interview:
