Hiring Now: Field Director


Summit Achievement combines the best features of a wilderness program and special needs boarding school by integrating a residential milieu and traditional academic instruction with outdoor adventure-based therapy. Using the White Mountain National Forest in Maine and New Hampshire for the majority of their course area, students on expedition master a variety of outdoor living skills, including camp craft, navigational skills, and backcountry safety.

The Field Director is a collaborative member of the treatment team and program department.  Ideal candidates will be able to mentor field staff on interpersonal and outdoor skills; have familiarity with residential and wilderness treatment settings; technical experience in rock climbing, flat-water canoeing, and winter camping is preferred (but not required); be an active steward of a healthy and inclusive community; able to respond to student crisis; and competent with computer-based systems (Gmail, BestNotes, Microsoft suite, etc.).

We are seeking energized folks who are ready to take on a new challenge.  Expectations of the role center around an ability and desire to grow professionally in the outdoor workspace, a focus on supporting and nurturing the guide community, and bringing fresh and dynamic energy to the company.  We value diversity in the workplace and aim to create a space where Summit uplifts the voices of each and every member of the team.  We are actively encouraging people of differing gender identities, racial backgrounds, sexual orientations, and ethnicity to apply.  Summit Achievement is an equal opportunity employer.
