What if I’m not yet a professional in all of the activities Seven Stars facilitates? Can I still work at Seven Stars?
Of course! Don’t worry if you currently don’t have the skills to be an Outdoor Recreation Specialist. Employee training at Seven Stars is hands on and constant. You may not feel like a professional now, but through training and experience, you will develop the skills required to be a professional Youth Mentor or Outdoor Recreation Specialist. Once hired, staff that are not as experienced are paired with experienced staff that can train you in all aspects of outdoor adventure facilitation.
Each skill taught at Seven Stars can be compared to real life skills that will help our students succeed. For example, rock climbing and bouldering are great ways to teach about overcoming fears and frustrations. Mentors and outdoor specialists “frontload” or teach students and each other how to be successful before the activity begins. They carefully guide, encourage and support progressive learning and growth. Each student’s challenge is adjusted to their level of skill. After each activity, Mentors and outdoor specialists sit down with their group and process the activity. This provides students with an opportunity to see personal achievement, how they can improve as well as transferring the lessons they learn to their lives in the bigger world outside of Seven Stars.
After receiving an offer of employment, new employees attend a full week of on campus training. This week long training involves filling out initial Human Resources paperwork and training on facility policies and procedures, job duties, supervision and student safety, crisis management, documentation, etc. You will be paid for this training. After the first week of training, mentors spend a week in a “shadow” experience. During this time, the new mentor is assigned to “shadow” an experienced mentor in order to receive more practical training.
