Overview

The COBS Fellowship for People of Color provides an opportunity for training and obtaining field experience to fill an entry-level assistant instructor position during the summer season based in the Rocky Mountain Program (RMP) in Leadville, Colorado. This seasonal position begins in the summer (May) and ends in August. Paid training takes place prior to beginning your role as an assistant instructor. During the summer season, we strive for the Fellows to work between 20 and 30 course days as assistant instructors.

The Fellows will work directly with current Instructors and Course Directors to deliver the Outward Bound mission and Education Framework through primarily a wilderness setting, primarily backpacking in Colorado.  If a Fellow successfully completes any of our trainings, they may be positioned as a primary instructor on courses and can manage risk while on the course. If a Fellow is unable to pass a training then they will be positioned as an intern on a course and will be mentored by the instructional staff, a step in becoming an Assistant Instructor the following summer.  Fellows will work with a dedicated program leader who will support their career aspirations, assist with skill development, and support scheduling, community, and support needs.

Fellows, like instructors, also support pre- and post-course needs through planning, packing and structuring the course, completing course debrief paperwork, safety analysis and gear cleaning.

Fellows will be able to receive financial support to assist with costs associated with travel and the purchase of gear needed to complete the program.

After the Fellowship is complete you will have an End of Season check-in and we will look back on your summer and work with you to continue growing as an instructor.  We will also provide support for your career goals, if outside the organization.
