Seasonal and year-round
Being a staff member at Trails is more than the transfer of advice, knowledge and insights. The relationship offers reciprocal benefits. You get the personal satisfaction of sharing your skills and experience with a willing learner. Being involved with Trails youth over a period of a year has a profound impact.
There are typically four staff members for each age group, making the participant to staff ratio four to one. During the summer trips the group is divided into two groups; each trip is led by two staff members. The age range of our current staff is from 24 and 60 and many come from a wide variety of professional fields such as social work, outdoor education, teaching, law, mediation, youth engagement, and recreation and leisure.
