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.
The Field Instructor position is great for someone who wants to have a positive impact on youth while working in a beautiful outdoor setting. BRTW is known for their outstanding instructors and a high instructor to student ratio.

Getting past the six-figure revenue mark is one of the biggest obstacles that business owners trip over. But once you exceed $100,000, earning a million bucks is just around the corner! (Insert the happy dance here!)
