Outdoor Leader Position

Outdoor Leader Position

We are currently looking for Outdoor Education/Recreation qualified leaders to join our team for 2021!

As an Outdoor Leader you’re an essential part of a small community based around a truly unique outdoor and environmental education program and lifestyle. The Wollangarra philosophy is about doing rather than talking and fixing rather than complaining, so your days will be filled with hard work and a strong sense of purpose. You will introduce young people to the Victorian mountains through a program of practical conservation through outdoor education, which will help them to see environmental issues as exciting and demanding challenges to the way we live, rather than endlessly depressing and negative threats to our future.

Each week a new group of young people will come across the flying fox and get to experience a way of life that has largely been forgotten. They’ll leave behind their mobile phones, watches and timetables. You will get to bake bread, split wood, tend the veggie garden, collect the eggs and light the fire. You will get the opportunity to contribute to something positive in a meaningful way and feel like a valued member of the community.

The position requires that you reside on the Wollangarra property. You will live and work with three to four other Outdoor Leaders, two Directors and their one year old son. Wollangarra becomes your workplace, home and family for the year. This brings lots of laughter, fun, adventure and, inevitably, many challenges. The role is highly physical. Your time at Wollangarra will offer a challenging, but immensely rewarding experience. For the right leader, this is an experience of a lifetime.

Please see the position description for further details and how to apply. Any questions feel free to get in contact, directors@wollangarra.org.au
