Terra Education Local Director Application

On a Terra Education program, teens have the opportunity to travel and learn alongside experienced staff. By design, each Terra Education program is co-managed by both a Local and International Director. The collaboration is key: each Local Director has intimate knowledge of their host communities and culture and each International Director has in-depth professional experience working with youth. This is a temporary and seasonal 1-3 month long work opportunity which typically runs from June to August.

We appreciate your interest in working with us as a Local Director and we'll be in touch soon. Our interview process begins in January and runs as needed through May. We will contact all candidates via email.
