Kenai Mountains-Turnagain Arm National Heritage Area is seeking an Anchorage Outdoor School Program Manager.

The Anchorage Outdoor School (AOS) is a 3-day residential outdoor school program for 4th and 5th graders at the U.S. Forest Service’s Begich Boggs Visitor Center in Portage Valley. Our program’s mission is to connect students with Alaska public lands through three days and two nights of place-based, outdoor, active learning. For many children, AOS is their first experience hiking in a forest, wading in a stream, or seeing a glacier. The program is run in partnership with the Anchorage School District and a team of experienced outdoor education professionals. This program has conducted two pilot sessions of Outdoor School in Spring and Fall 2019.

The Outdoor School Program Manager position will be working closely with public and private partners to permanently establish and grow the program to operate for multiple weeks each session.

This is a year-round, part-time, hourly position, with an anticipated average of 20 hours per week (more when AOS is in session). The position is funded by the National Heritage Area Program and may alter due to circumstances surrounding funding.
