Join a dedicated team of professionals this summer, and make a difference in the lives of Jewish young adults. We are seeking outdoor professionals, Jewish educators, and licensed clinical therapists to support our Therapeutic Expeditions in Summer 2021.
“The mechanism through which change occurs out in the wilderness is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The wilderness has a way of slowing everything down, and showing me what matters most. It is where I am my best self, and where, I believe, others can find their best selves.”
~Danit, BaMidbar Field Guide
Are you a licensed mental health professional looking to use wilderness and adventure-based experiences as part of your therapeutic process? Working in BaMidbar’s Therapeutic Expeditions, Field Therapists support implementation of student treatment plans through experiential activities. The Field Therapist collaborates with the primary therapist on student well-being and group functioning, and facilitates individual and group therapy in the field. The Field Therapist also works in collaboration with Field Guides in maintaining a positive group milieu and therapeutic environment.

Are you a seasoned outdoor professional and passionate educator? Working in BaMidbar’s Therapeutic Expeditions, Field Guides serve as mentors and wilderness guides for young adults struggling with mild to moderate social, emotional, behavioral, and academic challenges. Through applying therapeutic concepts, teaching technical and fundamental skills, integrating Jewish values and traditions, and connecting personally with students, staff serve as a support system for program participants. Using BaMidbar’s supportive, strengths-based approach, Field Guides encourage students to move beyond their comfort zones to experience new, unexpected levels of confidence, personal achievement, and growth.
