Broadreach is a leader in experiential programs abroad for middle and high school students. Over the past 26 years, more than 18,000 students have traveled with Broadreach to over 40 countries.

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 where you are supervising students, while also being a mentor, teacher and instructor. Guide students through interactive activates, (including snorkeling, hiking and community service) and embody the mentality of being a traveler not a tourist.

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 21. 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.

This is a summer seasonal position, starting ASAP. Season runs from June 3rd to August 4th. Our office is based in Raleigh NC, and the program takes place in Costa Rica.
