Looking to serve your gym community in exchange for membership?

We’re a rock climbing gym looking for individuals interested in our Time-Trade program (formerly our volunteer program), but what we really want are people who recognize that the right experience could change a life for the better. You do not need to be peppy and upbeat 100% of the day, but should exude a sense of warmth and be comfortable engaging diverse populations as you approach them in your role. You will be the face of our entire organization and you will be working in a team-centered environment working constantly to improve and grow.

Experience in climbing isn’t necessarily a requirement but it is highly recommended. Experience with our facility is important. We expect you to have been at least a few times before and understand the nature of what we offer and who we are.
