Rewild Your Workday!

We are now looking for creative and passionate individuals to build our Rewilding School family.

IMG_3798.jpg

 Imagine a school driven by students’ interests, not by a rigid curriculum. Imagine being able to support kids through challenging times and help them grow as human beings. Imagine a school school has no screens, no pens, no paper--one that isn’t a school at all- but instead the hallways and classrooms are the streams, fields, and forests of our local outdoor spaces.

What we offer at the Rewilding School is a new approach to learning. One in which students and educators are given space to learn and grow as humans; where play and imagination are at the center of everything, and are employees are treated with the focus and respect that all working people deserve.

As of our Spring 2024 season, we are currently hiring for the following positions:
