    Who We’re Looking For

    We hire educators, college and university students, former camp counselors, Spanish language teachers, residence life coordinators, community volunteers, world travelers, and individuals with many other diverse backgrounds.

    No matter the position you’re applying for, we expect our staff to deliver on our two main priorities:

    1. Safety
    It is our (and your) number one priority. In addition to the physical safety of each and every trip member, the emotional and social well being of participants is equally as important.

    2. Delivering an unforgettable experience
    We expect our staff to operate as team players, approach every day with enthusiasm, be respectful, and strive to create a memorable travel experience for each and every trip member.

    Why Work With Us?

    The satisfaction you get from a summer position with Westcoast Connection is unparalleled. We’ll be the first to admit it’s not an easy job and comes with a lot of responsibility, but if you’re prepared to put in the effort, you’ll have the time of your life!

    Just think, you’ll get to try incredible activities like white-water rafting, sand boarding, surfing, hiking, zip lining, and waterfall rappelling. You’ll also have unique experiences such as volunteering with organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs and Habitat for Humanity, navigating European metro systems, interacting with small communities in Peru and Thailand, visiting world famous landmarks and so much more! Our leaders contribute so much to creating a positive experience and forming a dynamic, tight-knit group. It’s something that truly makes our programs unique.

    Training Weekends

    All staff must be available for mandatory training sessions leading up to trip departures. These sessions will further acquaint you with our philosophy, policies, and procedures. During these sessions you’ll learn what it takes to successfully run a program. It’s also an opportunity for you to get to know your team members before the start of your journey together!

    We provide meals, accommodations and recreation activities as well as an allowance paid for travel to and from training sessions depending on your location.

    Final placement is contingent upon successful completion of training.

    Please review the schedule below to ensure you’re able to attend the training weekend for your desired position.
