Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness
Hiring: Field Instructor
Our program was created to help teens and their families through challenges that can occur when various behavioral, psychological, or developmental issues are present. Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness provides the opportunity for struggling teens to reset in nature utilizing clinical assessment, therapeutic skill, and a supportive peer culture. We prioritize the physical and emotional safety and wellbeing of our clients, while offering the highest level of customer service and clinical expertise available in a wilderness therapy setting.
Instructors are pivotal to the success of BRTW. Field instructors work an 8-day on, 6-day off schedule. For the entire 8 days, instructors hike and camp with clients in the National Forest. The program serves youth “in-crisis”, ages 13-18. Field instructors work with licensed therapists to deliver an individualized experience to every client.
