We’re a small company that focuses on supporting and developing the people that work here. Many of our field mentors come to their training week having no significant outdoor experience. Every individual has a unique perspective to offer and can learn how to live outside in the wilderness. Our team is, first and foremost, filled with people who care and people who want to grow and aid in the growth of others. You don’t need to come with years of outdoor experience or years of experience working in a therapeutic setting. As a team, we pride ourselves in being able to teach the skills necessary to do the job. As a Field Mentor, your coworkers and management team are focused on building you up and providing you with the space to succeed in the work that we do. Some of the things that differentiate us:
As a Field Mentor for Elements, you are the foundation of our program. You are a teacher, outdoor educator, parent, friend, advocate, and role model. Our primary responsibility is to keep our clients physically and emotionally safe. We provide a space for them to be challenged and grow while learning and practicing new skills through the experience of living with a group of peers and mentors in the wilderness. As a Field Mentor, you will facilitate group therapy sessions, outdoor skills clinics, one-on-one conversations, lead hikes, teach coping skills, and run mindfulness activities (among other things!). You will build meaningful relationships with our clients, and will guide them in all facets of our program. As a Field Mentor, you are part of a collaborative treatment team, working closely each week with a clinical therapist and a team of your peers to facilitate a productive therapeutic experience for each client.
Upcoming Field Mentor Trainings: June 22-29, August 11-18, September 8-15, October 13-20
