NCOBS Florida At Risk Programs Internship
North Carolina Outward Bound School offers internships for entry-level individuals interested in work in the field of outdoor education. The internship is designed to provide an understanding of Outward Bound philosophies and operations, as well as an opportunity to develop technical and interpersonal skills to work with students in a wilderness context. Interns will be involved in a variety of course support roles including service projects, driving, logistics, short-term field visits, and general base camp maintenance. Additional training and skills development days will occur intermittently to support individual development.
