The UCSD Challenge Course is seeking dedicated individuals to hire and train as facilitators. Ideal applicants for this entry-level position possess a combination of both interpersonal and technical skills. The Challenge Course staff is made up of part-time/contract student and non-student facilitators. Facilitators develop skills and experience through a process that includes initial training, mentoring, shadowing, and on-going training and skills development.These skills will be personal and professional assets for the rest of your life.
Following your application, group interviews will be scheduled based on interviewee availability in the weeks prior to training. The Challenge Course office will let you know your interview date & time.
Our training will provide future facilitators with the foundation to confidently guide groups through team building/leadership programs on and off the course, including facilitation and technical skills training. Applicants will be required to complete this 40-hour training before a hiring decision is made.
SCHEDULING AND PAY
Following the free training and the beginning of the shadowing process, facilitators can expect to work between 6-30 hours/week through the busy program season (May-October). The rest of the year can still be quite busy but the work is not consistent. Beginning pay is $11.50/hour through the shadowing phase and then becomes $12/hour for students and $14/hour for non-students.
