High School Outdoor Education Coordinator & Guide

Feb 06 2017 | Portland Waldorf School | Milwaukie

This is a part-time position for the 2017-2018 school year that can be combined with other job openings to create a fuller position at our school. It would be ideal of the applicant could attend at least one of the upcoming spring trips (April & May 2017) to learn from our current Coordinator. The high school outdoor program consists of a week-long outdoor experience in each of our four grades, which results in this position usually leading two week-long trips in both Fall and Spring for a total of four trips. This position would be responsible for all planning and logistics, including, but not limited to: securing campsites & backcountry permits in advance, hiring additional outdoor guides as needed, coordination with school personnel, communication to parents, arranging transportation, food, supplies, and maintenance of gear/equipment, working from existing curriculum and contributing additional age appropriate outdoor curriculum design and implementation, and acting as lead guide during the trip. There is the opportunity to create extra-curricular offerings for the students during spring and summer break, using an established format for fee-based experiences that would result in additional compensation and great happiness for the student body. The ideal candidate will be organized, have training and experience leading meaningful outdoor experiences for teens, experience managing outdoor program logistics particularly in a school setting, maintain medical certifications including WFR and CPR, and be well versed in Waldorf pedagogy. To apply, please send a cover letter and detailed resume to the Teacher Search Committee at teachersearch@portlandwaldorf.org, and describe any other skills you have that could result in increased hours of work at our school.
