Positive Energy Outdoors (PEO), a Duluth-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit, is hiring Adventure Club Lead Instructors/Outdoor Educators. Lead Instructors work with a small team of talented outdoor educators to operate a year round elementary school based outdoor education program that includes after school and summer programs and American Camp Association (ACA) accredited day camps. Adventure Club Lead Instructors are housed at Lowell Elementary School (2000 Rice Lake Road, Duluth, MN 55803).

Adventure Club participants come from diverse backgrounds, and the program serves over 60 children in grades pre-K-5 (the majority in grades K-2). PEO uses the Active-Participatory Approach, a childfocused framework of best practice methods and principles developed by the HighScope Foundation and the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality to guide programming, which blends physical skill building and social and emotional learning (SEL) with time in nature. We are looking for selfmotivated individuals who have experience running outdoor education programs for young children that teach SEL skills and build positive long term relationships with peers and adults.

Positive Energy Outdoors creates transformative experiences in nature through people and animal powered exploration of the outdoors. Programs emphasize teamwork, healthy risk taking, and positive communication, creating learning opportunities that can lead to a lifetime of active adventures.

To apply, please e-mail a completed employment application, including cover letter, resume and the names and contact information for three professional references.

Positive Energy Outdoors is an equal opportunity employer.
