Job Overview

TYPE OF POSITION:​ Summer program leaders in Peru, the British Virgin Islands, Montana Blackfeet Reservation, and Dominican Republic. Read more.

OVERVIEW: VISIONS programs for high school students focus on shared goals and accomplishments through service and cultural exchange. Adventurous exploration is woven into each program.  

Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

DESCRIPTION: VISIONS leaders are at the heart of our transformative service programs, which have spanned more than 35 years. 

We hire exceptional people who are driven to make positive change in the world through working hard and being role models for young people. Leaders instinctively prioritize student, team and community needs. They understand that having their own needs met can be the result of serving others and doing an excellent job.

Typical leader teams include outdoor educators, teachers, grad students, returned Peace Corps Volunteers, adventurers, and other individuals who understand that the most immersive work can be the most rewarding. 

Life skills and practical skills—from logistics to meal management and construction to “leave no trace”—are valued. At least one carpenter is hired for Montana and the BVI. Most teams include six leaders, keeping a 1 to 4 or 5 leader to student ratio. 

Leaders and teens live together in a group setting and are responsible for maintaining a smooth-running homebase, with meals, cleaning, shopping, etc. We live in humble, communal places that are integrated with the host community.  

The days are spent at project sites, cultural activities and outings. Leaders participate in, and supervise, all aspects of the experience. Each program session lasts from one to four weeks, and there are multiple sessions per summer with days off between. Longer sessions also include a day off per week.  

DATES: Employment duration ranges from 6-10 weeks in June through August, depending on the program location, and includes training before participants arrive. 

APPLY: If you feel you would be a good fit for our programs, please complete the application (below).

Special Benefits

Leaders receive a salary stipend, meals, lodging, and round-trip travel for international sites or a travel stipend for U.S. sites. 

PAY STIPEND/BENEFITS: Pay is commensurate with similar employment opportunities and experience, and varies depending on the job duration. Email [email protected] for details. 

Minimum Requirements


  • Minimum age 21
  • First Aid and CPR certified before the program begins (can be obtained after the hiring process)
  • Spanish skills for D.R. and Peru 


  • Advanced medical or lifeguard certifications
  • Carpentry skills
