Working at Boundless
WE ARE ENTERTAINING APPLICATIONS FOR January 4th, 2020
As a staff team, our mission is to build close connections and relationships with our students.
Once kids trust us and believe we will get their backs, amazing things start happening. They learn faster. Our school fills with joy and gut-splitting laughter.
Students’ respect must be earned by doing what we say we are going to do, adapting to their needs, and by simply being “real”.
We are looking for teachers, outdoor educators or those with counselling experience to join our band of merry maniacs, and help kids have the adventure of their lives.
So what do we look for in a Boundless candidate?
Possess one of the following areas of expertise and you’re a stand-out. Step up with two and you’re spectacular.
Come to the table with all three and you’re a superhero.
The Teaching Focus
Beyond hiring teachers who are detail focsued (you should’ve spotted that typo), we hire certified teachers who can teach compulsory curricula like English or History and have a flair for an experiential approach.
Yet the capacity to teach high school curriculum isn’t sufficient. There must be some acumen in the outdoors, physical fitness and adeptness with teens.
In the Spring and Summer, we run 5-13 day adventure programs for high school credits. In the Fall and Winter, we deliver an adventure-based boarding school for teens.
The Outdoor Focus
About 75% of our program is in the outdoors, so if you’re feeling chills just reading this, stop reading now.
In the spring and summer, we embrace white water adventure and deliver the type of education you’ll feel in your bones. The rest of the year, we do even more outdoors.
Those that specialize in the outdoor focus are often certified teachers, but just as often have solid experience in recreation, especially camps and canoe tripping programs.
Having experience working with teens is also a huge asset.
The Counselling Focus
Look, to counsel teens, you’re going to need…………………patience.
BSWs, MSWs, CYWs and other people with a history of working in adolescent mental health are suitable candidates.
How working at Boundless works
All new employees start with a 3-4 month orientation period at a wage of $2000/month, plus living and training expenses.
Once the orientation period ends, full time and seasonal jobs are immediately available.
We entertain applications year round, with three start dates – May 1st, September 1st and January 1st of every year.
