COSA Hiring Part-time Field Instructors

Hi there! Cottonwood Institute is hiring for part-time outdoor field instructors. Please see our job site for more info and how to apply by July 23.

We are looking for knowledgeable and passionate field instructors to lead outdoor programs throughout the year. CI partners with local schools and youth organizations to connect students to the outdoors through low impact camping and service-learning projects. Most programs operate in base camp settings throughout the Front Range.

We need field instructors for weekday field days and 1-night camping trips in September and October, with an opportunity for future work in the winter (January – March) and spring/ summer (April – July). This is a variable hour part-time position, meaning that you will work between 2 and 40 hours per week, depending on the programs and your availability. In addition to time on programs, you will need to spend some time before and after each trip on tasks like planning, packing out gear, picking up a vehicle, unpacking gear, debriefing, and filling out paperwork. We pay for all time spent working, including training.
