Looking for meaningful work in the outdoors? The Mount Hermon After School Adventures ("ASA") program may be the perfect fit!


At ASA, we believe that at the end of a long school day, students need space to run, play and get dirty! ASA Field Guides lead a small group of students in the outdoors, facilitate games and activities and create a fun space for students to explore and play outside. Most importantly, ASA Field Guides create a safe environment and guide students into loving relationships with each other and God. You can expect to work several days per week during the afternoon hours (generally 2-6pm) and be part of a supportive team. Applicants must have prior experience working with children, a fun-loving heart, and a flexible attitude. On any given day you may skip rocks at the creek, facilitate our roped tree climbing activity, or participate in a game of hide and seek in the redwood forest. No two days are ever the same!

Ministerial staff render their work, stewardship, relationships and behavior as evidence of being followers of Jesus Christ while embracing and affirming Mount Hermon Association, Inc.’s (“MHA”) Christian mission, vision, beliefs and standards of conduct.
