We Invented Work Hard, Play Hard

GOAT’s mission statement describes our organization as a group of passionate people on a mission to help under-resourced kids achieve their full potential. That’s our true mission, and outdoor adventure is the way we do that.

GOAT is not an outdoor company.

GOAT is a youth development ministry.

The only way we can ever do this is with the help and guidance of the Lord. We’re a group of Christians and we believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the hope of the world. Practically, the only way we can do this is with talented, passionate people. GOAT is only what is is because of who it is.

Job Openings

Occasionally we have staff positions open up. Most of these positions involve raising some amount of support for your salary. If you’re interested in working at GOAT full-time, we recommend starting with an internship or apprenticeship to see if GOAT is what you really want to do.

Internships are an immersive experience into the outdoor ministry environment of GOAT. Our internships are primarily offered during our summer outdoor programs, but we have openings all year long with GOAT and in our indoor climbing facility, The Mountain Goat. Come join us for the best summer of your life!
