Other Outdoor Summer Trip Leader

VISIONS Service Adventures – Posted by VISIONS Service Adventures Anywhere

Job Description

VISIONS offers summer programs for teens that focus on meaningful community service, cultural immersion and adventure. Co-ed groups of 16 – 25 teens and 4 – 6 leaders live and work together in the heart of a host community.

Alaska, British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Galápagos Islands, Guadeloupe, Montana reservations, Peru

Leaders supervise and mentor teens during 12-day to 4-week programs. Some locations have back-to-back sessions with a few days of break in between. Leaders work with and supervise students in all aspects of the program: service projects, recreational activities, cross-cultural events, and even day-to-day chores such as cooking and cleaning. The first priority is creating a positive and productive experience for the participants that cultivates growth and global understanding.
This is a residential program, with leaders and teens living together in a community center, rented house, or similar place that we call home for the summer, usually in a local neighborhood. We have long-term ties to the places we work, and thus are a part of the community. Leaders work hard, but the work is incredibly fulfilling when it’s the right fit. VISIONS leaders commit to a work attitude that is respectful, cooperative, positive, safety-conscious, and community-spirited.

● Minimum age 22
● First Aid and CPR certified before the program begins
● Background check (~ $35), paid for by applicant, will be required of all trip leaders immediately upon job offer
