Thank you for your interest in RedCliff Ascent. Our Field Instructors play a major role in the success of our program. Field instructors work an nine day on, six day off schedule. The eight days that they are in the field they are living out of their backpacks, working with youth at risk.
Although experience is not necessary, it is helpful to have some experience working with teens. Our prospective instructors are invited to attend an eight day training. Check here for training dates. During this training, they are taught wilderness skills, such as bow drill fires, camp set up and tear down, hiking and backpacking as well as therapeutic and communication skills. They are also informed of the rules and regulations as well as the philosophy of RedCliff Ascent. Going through the eight day training does not automatically guarantee that they are hired as field instructors. Although we hope that everyone that is invited to training continues on to work as a field instructor. The training is not paid, however there is a $200 signing bonus issued upon the completion of the internship.
This program is meant to be a therapeutic intervention for these youth. Field instructors that are emotionally stable and have strong boundaries will have great success in working with our students. It is of utmost importance that our field instructors are not easily manipulated and are willing to uphold the rules and regulations of RedCliff Ascent.
Our employees are required to be at least 21 years old, pass an annual physical examination, have a high school diploma or equivalent, pass a pre-employment and random drug screening tests, clear a Federal Criminal Background check, have a current CPR and First Aid certificate (these do not have to be done before training, we offer CPR and First Aid training to you once you have been hired), be patient and love the outdoors.
Be prepared to send three letters of professional recommendation, a resume with a cover letter and copies of all current certifications.
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if I can help with anything. I look forward to hearing from you.
Recruiter, RedCliff Ascent
