If you are looking for a job teaching people about the outdoors and the environment and you have a best friend willing to put up with you then consider applying to be a Travelling Trainer with Leave No Trace for their upcoming e-tour.

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics is looking to hire two teams to travel across the US running programs and activities specifically for kids in schools, retail stores, summer camps and other events. The tour is sponsored by Coleman, The North Face and Subaru.

The pay probably isn’t huge but all your food and lodging expenses are included with the monthly salary. Also the job descriptions says that, “team members will be outfitted with apparel, equipment and supplies necessary for teaching and camping, as well as communicating electronically.”

You need to have at least two years teaching experience, exceptional communication and presentation skills as well as Leave No Trace Training (Master Educator preferred). Oh yes, you need to apply with a partner who you know as only teams of two are accepted as applicants. They won’t be matching single people into teams.

The gig goes from February 2012 through to July 2012 with possibility of it being extended to the end of 2012 if they get the funding.

Sounds like a pretty sweet gig to me. If you are interested you can get all the info here.
