This holiday season, give the healing power of adventure to young adults impacted by cancer.


FD Careers

 First Descents prides itself on the people who run our organization. We look for the brightest, most talented, and adventurous people we can find. If you think you have what it takes and the passion to make a difference, start by sending us an awesome pitch letter and resume to the email addresses outlined in each job description.


P.S. Please show us your commitment to our mission through humor and creativity in your cover letter. Use of phrases such as To Whom It May Concern, Dear Sirs, Dear Gentlemen, Esteemed HR Team, are not quite our style. Cultural fit and an authentic appreciation for the unique organization that is First Descents must come through in a unique initial outreach.
