REPORTS TO: Chief Operating Officer


Our mission is to transform the lives of youth from all backgrounds using nature-based experiences and wellness adventures that reconnect them with self, nature and community.
We do this through high-impact, nature-based learning and innovative, non-traditional therapeutic approaches to mental health and wellness. As an innovator in youth development, we operate three programs: Whole Hearts, Minds & Bodies; Sierra Experience; and 4Roots Wellness. Since 2006, we have served over 25,000 young people.


The Administrative Director has a critical supporting role from the office in the overall mission to improve youth mental health. By maintaining the organization’s sound financial and staffing building blocks, the holder of this position will provide a firm foundation for GMC’s efforts in support of youth in the Truckee-Tahoe region and beyond.
