Challenge Course Facilitator​ (Multiple positions, open to students, staff & community!)

One of the coolest jobs at Cornell is certainly working as an instructor for Cornell Outdoor Education. The Cornell Team & Leadership Center hires and trains students and community members to facilitate icebreakers, low element teambuilding, and high element challenge course programs.

We are are offering free Low and High Initiative trainings for those who are interested in Cornell Team & Leadership Center and have intent to work for us. No previous experience on a challenge course is required, though previous experience as either a staff or participant on a challenge course is preferred.

Following the trainings, each facilitator is expected to TA 3 low and 3 high programs. During the TA time, you will verify your skills, and receive feedback from the Lead Facilitator. Once you and the Lead Facilitator agree upon your readiness, you can start facilitating for pay. For some people with experience, it may take less than 3 programs, for others with less or no experience, it may take more than 3 programs.
