The Youth Backcountry Instructor (YBI) will work under the direct supervision of the Tahoe Rim Trail Association’s Youth Programs Manager and Zephyr Point’s Program Manager to implement the Youth Backcountry Camp (YBCC) Program by supervising, teaching, and facilitating meaningful experiences for youth during multi-day backpacking trips. This Program focuses on backcountry skills, natural history, and character development through experiences that take youth into new and outdoor environments.
Statement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:
The YBCC Program is committed to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in Tahoe’s natural spaces by serving fully-outfitted recreation experiences to youth from underserved and underrepresented communities. We believe that it’s important for these participants to see outdoor leaders who represent and can relate to their identities and backgrounds. We encourage candidates who identify as Latinx, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and/or with other communities historically excluded from outdoor spaces to apply.
To apply, please submit an application here: https://www.zephyrpoint.org/join-our-team/deadline-application/. Please contact Kerri Wasko (she/her), Zephyr Point Program Manager, for questions regarding the position at [email protected].
Compensation and Benefits:
Staff will receive a $6,000 compensation package that includes housing at Zephyr Point’s lake-front facility, all meals Monday-Friday during the term of employment, reimbursement for required certifications, a travel stipend, and a salary stipend of $4,000. Local staff who don’t require lodging accommodations will qualify for a higher salary stipend in lieu of housing, meals, and travel stipend. An additional stipend will be given to staff who are fluent in Spanish. Staff living at the facility are expected to participate in Zephyr Point’s intentional living community. This involves living in a co-housing environment and participating in shared meal times, joining community-building activities, and working with other staff to maintain housing facilities.
Certifications must be obtained before the start of the position and valid through the employment end date. Some certification courses may be provided at Zephyr Point prior to the position start date.
