Program Leaders - 2017

Keen to spend a year inspiring awesome young people and living in spectacular mountain location? We are on the hunt for our new team of Program Leaders for 2017!                

Interested in finding working for a grass roots organisation? We're looking for around 6 people to join our team in 2017. We are looking for a range of skills, not everyone in the team needs to have outdoor qualifications. Essentially we want enthusiastic, hard working, highly motivated staff with a passion for simple, tech. free living and developing young people.

This will be a unique experience to live and work on a beautiful 400 acre (electricity free) pioneer style property in the Victorian High Country.

Mittagundi is not your regular Outdoor Education Centre. The young people have a three day hike into our pioneer style property and spend four days doing activities such as rafting, abseiling, skiing*, and maintaining the farm before they hike out again. Our property backs directly onto the Alpine National Park and is situated in one of the most beautiful areas in Victoria.

Program Manager - 2018

We're looking for a skilled outdoor educator with program management skills to join our team in an exciting leadership role. This position is designed for a person with solid outdoor and group leading experience to be a valued part of a professional team delivering unique opportunities for young people and leaders on our classic outdoor programs. The key responsibilities are to support the director in all program related responsibilities and team management. 

“I feel the value of this for myself, and I have seen the value others find in such simplicity over and over again. Young people talk about how happy they feel here, how nice it is to have a break from their phone, their schoolwork and all the other complexities of high school life. This is a place where you can relax, not in a switched off or lazy way, but in a way that opens your eyes, your heart and your mind. Mittagundi is a place where (to quote a young person) you can be ‘as happy as a dog with three tails!” Bec Wade, Program Manager 2015

Applications Due: 15th October each year.
