This position allows you to transform your love of wilderness and community into a meaningful, life-changing career.

Instructors teach backpacking skills, low-impact camping ethics, yoga, mindfulness practices, and facilitate team building activities and group therapy. Instructors act as a guide, teacher, role-model and constant support to the teens, young adults, and families with whom they work. Most importantly, our Field Instructors manage the inherent risk of the wilderness and oversee clients’ safety while backpacking in the beautiful wilderness backcountry.
Evoke Therapy Programs are clinically focused with Masters and Doctorate level therapists working together with Field Instructors as a treatment team to create treatment plans and goals. Field Instructors are empowered to be highly involved with creating a client’s personal treatment plan and assignments. Treatment plans are individualized for each participant.
Instructors work in a team of four to five with a group of eight to ten clients. The treatment team helps process the cause and effect relationship that living in the wilderness provides and guides participants in developing new choice-making skills. Evoke Field Instructors focus on teaching clients how to communicate assertively and be accountable for their choices.
