Field Team

Field guides at sunset in desertOpen Sky's field guides and field management team are a collection of exceptionally trained and mature people that are extraordinary role models for adolescents and young adults searching for a better way in life.  Day in and day out, field guides will work with each student to follow through on specific assignments and interventions designed by the treatment team. Field guides run daily group sessions, teach curriculum, and oversee the varied program activities throughout the week.  Field guides are really the heart and soul of the Open Sky program, taking advantage of the host of teachable moments that present themselves each day. For example, if a student becomes frustrated at not easily succeeding at a given task, the guides are there to coach them through to a successful experience.  Seven of Open Sky's nine owners were field guides prior to starting Open Sky.  If you are interested in becoming an Open Sky field guide, check out our employment page.

You can also watch the webinar about how we select, train and track field guides.
