Job Title: RMP-Instructor:Fellowship for Emergining Leaders
Job Category: NON PROFIT
Job description:  
Organizational Overview

The Colorado Outward Bound School (COBS) is a non-profit adventure-based education organization that emphasizes personal growth through challenge and experience.  For over 60 years our wilderness courses have focused on inspiring responsibility, teamwork, confidence, compassion, and environmental and community stewardship.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Colorado Outward Bound School celebrates diversity and strives to create an inclusive environment for all employees. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, nation origin, age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is based on qualifications and business needs.

We want to be transparent with all applicants that working at the Colorado Outward Bound School means joining a growth-minded community where we are actively dismantling our organization’s white supremacy culture. This conversation shows up at all levels of the organization – in our trainings, in our meetings, on our courses, and in our daily lives. Anti-racism and diversity, equity, and inclusion work can be messy at times and we remain committed to navigating that together. Challenge and discovery are what we do and (un)learning is a fundamental part of our practice. COBS was originally built for and by white men, and now in support of our community members with marginalized identities – at COBS, in the outdoor industry, and beyond – we are actively working on changing that story to support individuals with different identities to empower themselves as we address barriers related to race, culture, socioeconomics, ability, gender, identity, geographic location, and mental health. While we are committed to learning and making necessary changes, we recognize we have a long way to go and want to notify applicants of that up front. 

Position Summary

The COBS Emerging Leadership Fellowship provides an opportunity for training and obtaining field experience to fill an entry-level assistant instructor position during the summer season based in the Rocky Mountain Program (RMP) in Leadville, Colorado. This seasonal position begins in the summer (May) and ends in August. Paid training takes place prior to beginning your role as an assistant instructor. During the summer season, we strive for the Fellows to work between 20 and 30 course days as assistant instructors.

The Fellows will work directly with current Instructors and Course Directors to deliver the Outward Bound mission and Education Framework through primarily a wilderness setting, primarily backpacking in Colorado.  If a Fellow successfully completes any of our trainings, they may be positioned as a primary instructor on courses and can manage risk while on the course. If a Fellow is unable to pass a training then they will be positioned as an intern on a course and will be mentored by the instructional staff, a step in becoming an Assistant Instructor the following summer.  Fellows will work with a dedicated program leader who will support their career aspirations, assist with skill development, and support scheduling, community, and support needs.

Fellows, like instructors, also support pre- and post-course needs through planning, packing and structuring the course, completing course debrief paperwork, safety analysis and gear cleaning.

Fellows will be able to receive financial support to assist with costs associated with travel and the purchase of gear needed to complete the program.

After the Fellowship is complete you will have an End of Season check-in and we will look back on your summer and work with you to continue growing as an instructor.  We will also provide support for your career goals, if outside the organization.
