We are seeking qualified, high-energy individuals to work in our Lakeside Classroom. The mission of the University of Maine 4-H Center in Bryant Pond is to educate and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds toward social, economic, and environmental sustainability and conservation through affordable, experiential learning. Our campus is nestled on the shores of Lake Christopher in Bryant Pond, Maine with 160 acres of forest and mountain trails leading to remote campsites, streams, ponds, wetlands, and a mountain summit.

The Lakeside Classroom program focuses on teaching environmental education and teambuilding to students, kindergarten through college. The primary responsibility of Field Teachers is to provide students with high quality programming in ecology, teambuilding, challenge course/climbing wall, and outdoor skills. Group management and team building skills are an important part of this position, and make up to 70% of what we do. We reached over 3,000 school children in our year-round Lakeside Classroom programs in 2016. We also work with over 1,000 youth in our open enrollment summer camp. This fall position runs until mid November, with limited opportunity for winter extensions in afterschool and expeditionary roles.

will take turns monitoring the bunkhouses until around 9:00pm. The Director on Duty and Medic are on-call after evening meds each night. Most weeks will consist of two or three overnight programs. This job demands a great deal of energy, flexibility and commitment; field teachers often plan and prepare lessons outside of the regular workday.
