We are Hiring!
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 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. We operate week-long learning vacations in cooperation with numerous educational groups and organizations, primarily Road Scholar. In addition, we offer a suite of community programs, evening events, lectures, and youth programs.
Our campus is located on the edge of Denali National Park along the Nenana River. We are a diverse organization, with our roots firmly planted in the local community, and Denali National Park and 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!
Each summer, our field educators help to inform and inspire hundreds of visitors to Alaska and Denali. DEC’s Field Educators are responsible for providing engaging and informative guided hikes to our learning vacation participants on Denali’s front-country trail systems. Additionally, educators will work to develop and present natural history classes to our learning vacation participants, visiting tour groups, and local hotel guests throughout the summer.
Group Leaders travel with our adult learning vacation programs as they explore Alaska. Their main duties include facilitating the group’s day to day activities and ensuring that everything runs smoothly.
