Summer trip leader positions

Bold Earth is no longer accepting applications for the 2021 season. The hiring process for the summer 2022 season will begin in October 2021. Trip leaders are hired on a rolling basis, and we encourage candidates to submit their applications promptly. Our leaders are hired to work with Bold Earth rather than hired for a specific trip. Staff teams and trips are assigned closer to the summer (typically in or around May). Details of the Bold Earth hiring process are below.
