Wild Society (wildsociety.org) is a wilderness education nonprofit based in Kitsap County in Washington State. Our mission is to cultivate wonder and belonging in the natural world. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual excited to help us grow as an organization with the support of volunteers, community partners, donors, board members, and program participants. You will have the opportunity to help guide the future direction of our work alongside the Wild Society team.
Wild Society backcountry guides are responsible for guiding and teaching youth backpacking trips in the Olympic Mountains. All trips have two guides and up to 10 participants. Wild Society programs follow a daily structure that incorporates reflection, direct instruction, and exploration. Guides engage participants throughout the day to encourage connection with, and deeper understanding of the natural world.
