Education and Agriculture
The central focus of this position is on teaching. Programs serve pre-K through adult visitors, with the majority being elementary school-aged children. The work week typically involves 5 teaching days. Most programs are 1 day visits (10am- 2pm) but we also offer overnight programs in which teachers work with the group for two or more days and lead an evening campfire. Overnight programs do not require TIRs to camp or supervise the group at night. Program formats vary seasonally. In spring and fall, the focus is on school, community group, volunteer and family programs, with a Tuesday- Saturday work week. Summer months are focused on our day camp program, with a Monday-Friday work week.
In addition to teaching, you will receive training in maintaining a small farm and stewarding national park land. A rotating teaching schedule means periodically supporting garden and ranch projects, including days when you will be supported in covering all the farm chores. You may substitute teach or support programs during this week as needed. Throughout the year you will also lead tours and help facilitate volunteer work projects with individuals and groups during corporate, donor and community volunteer events. Slide Ranch is public parkland and open to hikers during daylight hours, so as a residential staff member you will share responsibility in providing basic orientation to visitors.
