With over 50 years of innovation in experiential and outdoor education in the Pacific Northwest, Northwest Outward Bound School (NWOBS) continues to change lives through challenge and discovery. Our transformative and educational wilderness courses are set in some of the most dramatic and stunning parts of the United States. NWOBS was founded in 1965 and facilitates wilderness-based programs in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, and also serves urban youth and schools in the Portland metropolitan area. As an Outward Bound School, we are committed to the core values of compassion, integrity, excellence, equity, inclusion and diversity, and strive to achieve the following outcomes: building character, developing leadership skills, and creating an ethic of social and environmental responsibility.

The cook must be enthusiastically able to accommodate special diets and food preferences with reasonable alternatives. At times, the cook may be asked to plan meals for special events of up to 55+ people. In addition to meal preparation, the cook will ensure an ample supply of healthy and hearty snacks, breakfast items, and ingredients for cooking on days off. The cook must set a tone of inclusion and welcome at mealtimes, and be able and willing to work productively with others.
