Career Launch

Earn money and Academic Credit with Vamos!

Vamos Outdoors Project partnered with Career Connect Washington and different educational institutions to create a Career Launch Program for Washington state students to obtain practical work experiences while earning money and academic credit. 

What is a Career Launch Program?
These are programs that combine meaningful, supervised, paid, on-the-job experience with aligned academic instruction so college students or “career launchers” can complete the work-based learning requirements for their degrees and acquire experience in their field of interest. There are programs like these all over the state and in every discipline designed to fill the gap between education and employment.

Be part of our team!

Vamos will provide Career Launchers the opportunity to become a mentor and help lead our outdoor programs starting in September and ending in August. Career Launchers will gain work experience in the fields of education and non-profit administration. Career Launchers will:

  • Apply in September for one of 10 career launch positions available

  • Complete trainings with Vamos

  • Support after-school programs and participate in our 4-week summer migrant program, totaling 150 hours of academic credit and paid work at a $25 rate

  • Finish with a foundation for their education and nonprofit administration careers
