Other Outdoor Hospitality Instructor

Kalu Yala – Posted by melissa.mazurkewicz Panamá, Panama

Job Description

You’ve started an ecotourism business and have put in your time as a guide. You’re an expert in crafting a positive experience while traveling, from planning logistics to managing teams. You keep up to date with innovations in tourism, from branding to financial models. Even more importantly, your passion is teaching and mentorship of the next generation of leaders in the hospitality industry.

You feel comfortable leading 8-12 university level students for a 10-week semester, teaching them about hospitality in an off-the-grid wilderness environment. You also are an expert in your field and enjoy writing and speaking about relevant and innovative topics.

Each week there will be 5 hours of traditional education to your students in the form of lecture or seminar based learning. For 15 hours each week, your students will serve in assistant roles as you lead them in your own Kalu Yala based Hospitality project utilizing the experiential learning model. 10 hours are reserved for you to facilitate your students pursuing independent projects that serve the community and build off skills learned in class. You are also responsible for administration and planning of lessons as well as accessing communications and documenting progress. Though we are in an off-the-grid setting there is still a need for using technology and communicating with other venues and administration.
