Our mission is to challenge students to broaden their perspectives through new experiences and environments, to inspire them to develop lifelong skills, to discover and explore their passions, and to empower them to reach beyond self-imposed limitations and take charge of their future.

Broadreach Instructors are expected to educate, mentor and inspire students every day. This is a 24/7 position with limited free time or personal space. Broadreach Instructors also need to be energetic and empathetic role models who excel in building meaningful relationships with young adults. Managing health and safety, maintaining a positive attitude through challenging circumstances, leading games, participating in service-learning activities, teaching, developing students’ personal growth, facilitating inclusive group dynamics and demonstrating respectful travel are just a few of the many responsibilities of a Broadreach Instructor.

Broadreach Adventures are fun, rewarding and demanding. Each course is approximately three weeks long and is mentally and physically challenging. Our most successful instructors are positive, flexible, team players who are able to create a fun, cohesive and supportive community. Groups typically have 8 – 14 students and two Broadreach Instructors.

Instructors would attend training in Raleigh, NC and then would be placed on one of the following programs, Costa Rica Sea Turtles, Costa Rica Veterinary Experience, or Amazon & Galapagos Eco Adventure. Season runs from June 7th to August 5th. Instructors are required to attend staff training from June 7th to June 13th.
