Adult Mentor Application
Adult mentors are the backbone of the Big City Mountaineers program. They guide our youth to overcome challenges and illuminate the meaning of their accomplishments. Big City Mountaineers is always looking for qualified, positive adult role models to fill our needs as adult mentors. We offer weeklong expeditions (backpacking or canoeing), as well as shorter excursions in some locations.
All NEW volunteers must reside within 200 miles of one of our hub cities: Denver, Oakland, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Minneapolis, or Madison. This policy was created to improve the quality of the experience for the teens we serve by giving them easier access to volunteers who have more direct training and who can participate in local events and activities more frequently.
BCM requires that all adults agree to our Acknowledgment of Risk and Medical Release. Please read before applying for a position. You will be asked to acknowledge that you have read it and that you agree with the policy.
