Join Our Summer Team!
While our campus was shuttered for the 2020 summer season, we are eagerly planning for and anticipating a fun and healthy 2021!
We are a diverse organization, with our roots firmly planted in the local communities and Denali National Park & Preserve. Each summer, we are lucky to welcome hard-working, motivated, and fun individuals who collectively make Denali Education Center possible. Our organization experiences a low staff turnover, so be prepared to fall in love with our dynamic and fun work community!
We will post Summer 2021 positions as they are known. Typically, we like to advertise in November/December for summer positions. This year, we will all be on furlough November 14 – January 4. We will endeavor to post positions before that time but may not know all our needs before then so please check back after the first of the year!
Positions we hire for in the summer include: cooks, hospitality, field educators, group leaders, youth educators, and program coordinators. Feel free to email email@example.com with questions – we look forward to hearing from you!
Denali Education Center is a non-advocacy, for-purpose organization and a proud partner of Denali National Park and Preserve. Our mission is to promote understanding and appreciation of Denali through fun, informative, and inspiring programs. Our 10-acre Denali campus is home to 24 guest rooms, a combined classroom and dining hall, a lecture hall, a yurt, an employee kitchen/bath facility, and employee cabins. Our Denali campus is located on the edge of Denali National Park along the Nenana River. Here, we operate week-long learning vacations in cooperation with numerous educational groups and organizations, primarily Road Scholar. In addition to learning vacations, we offer a suite of community programs, evening events, lectures, and youth programs.
We also have a 3-acre Talkeetna Campus that has a public building, a shop, and a small employee housing unit. The Talkeetna Campus is new to Denali Education Center when we merged with the Northern Susitna Institute in June 2020. We are excited host to community programs, evening events, lectures, and youth programs in Talkeetna starting in summer 2021!
