First and foremost, Land Stewards love working with children and inspiring them to lead active, fulfilling lives.
Position: Land Steward/Outdoor Educator Location: Marlborough, NH
Land Stewards lead student groups in outdoor games and team-building activities, daily meal chores, work periods, and farm activities; and they serve as wilderness trip leaders on hiking and canoeing adventures in New Hampshire. This is a demanding position. Hours are long and the work is challenging. But it offers the emerging teacher a once-in-a-lifetime chance to participate in a vibrant community and at the same time hone teaching and leadership skills in an intense environment.
