ARCC is looking for Program Leaders who are enthusiastic about working with students ages 13 -18, and who have strong experience working with groups. ARCC leaders focus on fostering constructive group dynamics, facilitating games, activities and initiatives, overseeing outfitted activities, and ensuring that each person in the group is able to safely achieve goals consistent with his or her abilities. Trip Leaders also provide natural and cultural history education relevant to their location as well as teach the curriculum designed for our community service programs. Leaders will guide groups of up to eighteen students, with a co-leader, through rigorous community service projects and adventure programs. The trips are both mentally and physically challenging for leaders and participants, with programs ranging from fourteen to thirty-six days in duration.
ARCC seeks leaders who will be a positive influence on the participants, supporting them throughout the trip and creating a fun, safe, and supportive environment in which they can thrive. Our leaders and students participate in backpacking, sailing, rafting, SCUBA diving, surfing, snorkeling, sea kayaking, international service projects, and cultural exchanges.. Experience in these areas is helpful, but not required. Other leader responsibilities may include travel logistics, keeping a daily trip log, communicating with office staff about the status of the trip, and making crucial decisions along the way that may affect the outcome of the trip.
ARCC leaders are contracted to lead one or two trips, ranging from two to four weeks each. All leaders are required to participate in our Staff Training (June 13 – 20, 2018*). The first-year leader salary ranges from $1,000 – $1,600 depending on the length and number of trips you lead. All living and travel expenses will be paid for while working for ARCC. In addition, we offer great pro-deals on outdoor equipment from many well-known manufacturers.
