The Marketing and Social Media Intern will work closely with the Outreach & Marketing team to build on and expand program opportunities and market knowledge of our programming offered in California. Supervised by the Outreach Coordinator, the Marketing and Social Media intern will allow OBCA to reach more participants, funders and supporters by adding capacity to the organization including new materials, photo management, social content creation, and video editing.
Who We Are
Outward Bound California is part of a national network of experiential and outdoor education programs for youth and adults. We use the inherent challenge of the wilderness and urban outdoor spaces to teach people of all ages to be compassionate leaders, serve their communities, and build character to ultimately reveal the full potential within all of us.
With a 50 year history in the US, we provide extended, expeditionary style rock climbing, backpacking, mountaineering, urban, and service courses, serving ages 12 and up, including adult and veteran programs. As a non-profit, more than 2/3 of our students receive partial or full scholarships to go on a course with us in the High Sierra, Joshua Tree and in the Bay Area.
