The internship is an on-the-job training program for individuals aiming to become field instructors facilitating expeditions for VOBS. Depending on skill level, experience, scheduling, and availability, some interns will be promoted to instructor the same season. Most will complete the 9-week internship and will seek to be re-hired as a field instructor the following season. Internships begin with 12-14 days of in-the-field expedition training and 5-6 days of introductory technical skills and student management training. This is followed by 6 weeks of practical work supporting the program.
The VOBS Ely Summer Interns will perform a wide variety of duties on any given day or week ranging from supporting a rock climbing day for students, driving to the airport to greet a new student group, or staining one of the many buildings on our 40-acre wilderness basecamp. The intention is for the interns to have a diversity of work that will deepen their understanding and appreciation of the position of field instructor, program management, how the basecamp runs, and how to work with students. Approximately 40% of the intern’s time will be spent in student contact and approximately 60% will be spent supporting courses, course delivery, and the base camp community.
