Sierra Nevada Journeys is hiring for Residential Outdoor Science Instructors (ROSI) for our Grizzly Creek Ranch location, near Portola, CA. Our ROSI roles are full-time, seasonal positions that run from late-February to mid-November. The primary responsibility of an instructor is delivering residential, one- to five- day outdoor science educational programs primarily serving 5th and 6th grades from regional elementary and middle schools. All of our lessons are hands-on science and collaborative problem solving-based with a focus on critical thinking, exploration, and environmental stewardship. Instructors are responsible for leading and educating a group of 12 – 15 students throughout their program, including facilitating large group activities, leading meals and working evening programs. All lessons are written according to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and we train our staff using University of California at Berkeley’s BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning & Expertise Sharing) teaching techniques and pedagogy.

During the summer season, Sierra Nevada Journeys delivers both residential summer camp programs and community group programs for kids with disabilities and leadership development. During our traditional, week-long summer camp, Instructors facilitate activities such as the challenge course, swimming, kayaking, off-site trips, and teen leadership programs. Instructors may find themselves in a summer camp leadership position such as Head Lifeguard, Camp Helper, Staff Mentor, or Challenge Course Aid, if they possess the skills and required certifications.
