Back Country Expedition Leader
After being involved with the Program for two years, boys (ages 12 - 17) are invited to move into the Link-Up phase of the Program for up to four more years. Links can participate in five-day, outdoor adventure trips during the summer and are encouraged to challenge themselves physically and socially. By doing so, Links can learn to be more successful collaborators, more confident individuals, and important role models for the younger boys in the program. Each summer we hire two Link-Up Trip Leaders who facilitate these trips, along with our Link-Up trip coordinator. Trip leaders must be 21 or older and be approved drivers.
If you're interested in the Back Country Expedition Leader position, check below. If not, you can skip this section. (Skipping this will not affect your consideration for Island Staff.)
Please list three references we may contact on your behalf that can speak to your ability to contribute to the Mayhew community. A good reference is someone who has known you for an extended period of time (at least one year) and who can speak to your work ethic, maturity, personal character, dependability, openness to constructive criticism, and ability to work well with others. You must offer at least one recent employment reference, one character reference, and one family member.
Please be thoughtful in responding to the following essay questions. In addition, be sure to use proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Sloppily prepared or incomplete applications will not receive serious consideration.
Please describe any applicable trainings or certifications you've earned (Life-Guard certification, Water Safety instructor certification, First Aid, CPR, Belay Training, Ropes Course Facilitation, Referee Training, etc.) Please be sure to note when (or if) those certifications/trainings expire.
Please describe any other experiences or abilities that have been important in your development and which might be useful in your work with the boys of the program (i.e., Do you have any other unique or interesting talents or skills?)
Please tell us more about yourself, your interests, your plans for the future, how you believe you would be able to be a contributing member of the Mayhew staff this summer, and what you hope to gain from the experience. Please take the time to thoughtful and thorough in your response.
