Company Overview

Backed by over 40 years of experience in the field of experiential education, GoBeyond (part of Global Expeditions Group) offers quality international travel and community service programs for teenagers.

Employment

GoBeyond is proud to attract and recruit the best in our field. Our summer staff consists of avid world travelers, highly qualified professionals, and fun and experienced facilitators and educators. All members of our team are dynamic, multi-talented and passionate individuals with an unending devotion and commitment to the safety and experience of our students.

The average age of our summer staff is 26. Almost all are 21 years or older, although we would consider a 19+ year old for a Staff-In-Training (S.I.T.) position if they possess the desired level of qualifications. Most of our staff are U.S. citizens, though a wide range of nationalities are represented every year. We accept applications on a year round basis but begin our summer hiring process between January and March. Contracts vary in length from 3 to 11 weeks depending on the location(s) assigned. We seek summer staff for the following positions in each of our journey locations:

  • Program Managers – Manages the overall operation of the program under the guidance of GoBeyond Directors. Supervises the Operational Staff in country and ensures all program operations are in accordance with the mission, philosophy, spirit, policies and procedures of GoBeyond. Site Directors also fulfill all of the responsibilities expected of Operational Staff.
  • Operational Staff – Provides direct care and supervision for the students. Works to create and maintain a positive, productive group dynamic. Fills various roles as assigned by the Site Director, GoBeyond Directors. This may include coordinating and/or leading educational activities, managing logistics and/or serving as language facilitator and translator.

Our Employment Application includes an opportunity for you to indicate the locations that you feel you are the most qualified to lead. We take this into consideration; however, all staff are hired on the basis that they are willing to lead any journey(s) assigned to them. The placement of staff is determined based on the applicant’s skills, abilities and GoBeyond staffing needs.

Staff Expectations

Our professional staff need to be the embodiment of the GoBeyond mission, philosophy, policies and procedures. We place high expectations on our summer staff, thus applicants should consider all of the following before applying.

  • Our staff must be enthusiastic and young enough at heart – as well as physically, mentally and in all ways able – to work with teenagers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in an environment that is highly active and adventurous, is physically and mentally demanding and lacks personal privacy, space and time off.
  • Risk management comes first in everything we do at GoBeyond. Staff are expected to create a fun, educational environment for our students that limits the possibility of loss or injury due to the inherent risks of our activities.
  • As international travel, community service and work with teenagers is in many ways unpredictable, staff need to be able to think on their feet and be flexible enough to handle change and associated challenges.
  • Although English does not need to be a first language, staff are expected to be fluent.
  • Staff need to maintain professional conduct and present a professional appearance at all times. Staff must be available for work through the duration of the journey(s). When applicable, staff are required to attend GoBeyond Staff Training, usually held several days before the beginning of our summer.
  • All staff are required to be trained in First Aid and CPR. Special consideration is given to applicants with advanced medical training such as Wilderness First Responder or EMT. In some situations, GoBeyond will pay for a highly qualified candidate to become certified upon hire.
  • We are a strict tobacco, alcohol and drug-free program for our students. As our staff are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are models of the behavior we expect from our students, our staff must be able to maintain tobacco, alcohol and drug-free behavior during their contractual periods. On exception, staff are permitted to consume alcohol in moderation during approved times off, but staff must understand these are infrequent exceptions to the rule rather than regular occurrences. All staff agree to random drug testing in the workplace.
  • Employment is conditional upon successful completion of GoBeyond Staff Training, a passing background check and an acceptable medical history form and/or examination by a licensed physician.
