Field Instructors

Field Instructors at Blue Ridge are central to the growth and success of our students! Instructors live and work in the outdoors with a group of students and other staff for 8 days at a time. This role requires resilience, a passion for service, and an a desire to connect with others.

Our Instructors are professionals who develop a wide variety of skills: outdoor living, motivational interviewing, risk management, group facilitation, and mindfulness– to name a few. We emphasize a relational approach that provides students with the support, awareness, and skills needed to achieve their goals.

Simply put: Field Instructors are role-models for a healthier way of life.

Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness is hiring part time Transport team members to assist in logistics operations. Transportation team members are a pivotal part of the student experience.

They further their support by helping to maintain the supplies (such as food and gear) between the office and the field. Hourly wages depend upon experience, with opportunities for mileage reimbursement for personal vehicle use and competitive bonuses for being on call. Hours are varied, and are occasionally at odd times when on-call.
