Hiring: Teachers, Outdoor Educators, and Counsellors
Outdoor High School: The Boundless School
Location: Applicants from across Canada are welcome. The job takes place in Palmer Rapids, Ontario.
We invite applications for the following contract periods:
Please note that each seasonal contract could culminate in a long-term salaried position or future seasonal contracts.
As a staff team, our mission is to build close connections and relationships with our students.
Once kids trust us and believe we will get their backs, amazing things start happening. They learn faster. Our school fills with joy and gut-splitting laughter.
Students’ respect must be earned by doing what we say we are going to do, adapting to their needs, and by simply being “real”.
We are looking for teachers, outdoor educators or those with counselling experience to join our band of merry maniacs, and help kids have the adventure of their lives.
If you are audacious enough to actually join our team, you will engage teenagers (sometimes laden with baggage) in high school education, OE and mentorship. The gig takes place on a 600-acre piece of wilderness paradise in the Madawaska Valley of Eastern Ontario. It's a venue that will seduce your soul.
Boundless will inspire your devotion to the well-being of our students, all older teenagers. Some won't be ready to accept you as an authority figure. Tricky, tricky.
As such, the job requires finesse and interpersonal artistry. It is challenging. Kindness, selfless behaviour and a wicked work ethic will propel you over any hurdle.
We hire year-round with typical start dates in early January, late April, and early September.
We invest heavily in our staff team. There are roughly 30 days of training each and every year. We pay for a variety of certifications and cover a majority of your expenses. We'll go above and beyond the help you figure this place out.
Staff often stay years at Boundless, or simply work multiple seasons — treating Boundless as a touchstone for their sanity and sense of adventure. Many people who have worked here comment how Boundless was a major influence in their careers and helped establish them in school boards, mental health programs and to be leaders in other OE programs.
Everyone starts with a 3 or 4-month first contract ($2500/month). Full-time salaried positions are available immediately thereafter.
