NCOBS Florida At-Risk Programs Internship
The North Carolina Outward Bound School offers internships for individuals interested in entry-level work and training in the field of outdoor education. The internship is designed to provide an understanding of Outward Bound philosophies and operations while also providing Interns with 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. Throughout the internship, intermittent training and skill development days will occur to support individuals' development as well. This position is located at our base camp in Scottsmoor, Florida.
At the North Carolina Outward Bound School, we are dedicated to the goal of building a vibrant, culturally diverse community of staff who are committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. In this effort, we strongly encourage men, individuals with disabilities, people of color, and veterans to apply.
