Other Outdoor Curriculum Manager

Glacier Peak Institute – Posted by GlacierPeakInstitute Darrington, Washington, United States

Job Description

Glacier Peak Institute (GPI) is a unique community-based outdoor leadership organization that offers immersive outdoor STEM and excursion programs that allow youth to tap their potential. Rural communities like Darrington are teeming with potential, while also facing compounding challenges—from natural disasters to historical underinvestment and lack of resources for youth education, recreation, and community health.
Through outdoor adventures and hands-on projects, youth develop creative thinking, problem solving, social and technical skills, and expand their environmental and local historical knowledge. By building relationships between rural and urban classrooms, GPI’s programs encourage connection and understanding, break cultural misconceptions and engage youth from across Western Washington as integral parts of their ecosystems. At GPI, we invest in the tools and experiences rural youth need to harness their full potential and directly contribute to the ecological and economic regeneration of their community. GPI became a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation in 2016.
