Join the Team
Walking Tree Travel is always looking for dynamic people who share our passion for travel. Our leaders are a select few who have shown dedication to the pursuit of foreign languages, cultural exploration and community development and want to share their enthusiasm with young adults. Leaders must be able to handle multiple issues at the same time, serve as a positive and energetic role model, and play friend, counselor, parent, guide and medical practitioner all at once, usually in at least two languages. It is a very challenging job, but even more rewarding. Our leaders have diverse backgrounds, but many are graduate students, educators and recent college graduates as they tend to have extensive time to travel during the American summer. The average age of our leaders is 26 and all of them have graduated from a distinguished college or university. If you are excited about the prospect please read our FAQs, then fill out the online application. A Walking Tree representative will respond to your application in a timely matter and schedule an interview if necessary. Thank you very much for your consideration!
All of our leaders must be graduates of a reputable college or university. They must have extensive travel experience preferably in the region in which they are applying to guide. Leaders should have leadership experience, ideally having worked with high school aged students. Leaders must be nearly fluent in the first language of the country they are applying to lead in. Leaders must be First Aid and CPR certified (or able to become certified before the program begins), have at least two weeks free during the summer to lead a program, be able to attend a three-day leadership orientation (paid for by Walking Tree) in the late spring and be able to drive stick.
