The WORD Instructors are the best! These are the folks that instruct our after school programmes and camps. As an instructor, you will be paid for teaching kids how to be good riders and good people. MTB skills, trail building, bike maintenance, and teamwork are all part of the job. You don’t need to be an amazing rider, but you do need to be stoked about helping kids enjoy it just as much as you do.
