Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC)
opens the beauty and challenge of the great outdoors to people with disabilities and disadvantaged youth. Every year, more than 2,100 people join ETC to raft whitewater rivers, ski alpine meadows, kayak the waters of the Golden Gate and Tomales Bay, and build leadership skills.
Adventures that Awaken the Spirit
ETC trips enable participants to access the wilderness and develop an environmental stewardship ethic. Since 1972, ETC has shared outdoor adventures with disadvantaged youth and people of all ages, including those with visual or hearing impairments, physical or developmental disabilities, and life-threatening illnesses. We also offer fundraising adventures for the general public and corporations to raise awareness of our mission. We welcome agencies, schools, and individuals of all abilities.
Environmental Traveling Companions is always seeking dedicated and talented people to join our community. We are an equal opportunity employer.
We offer seasonal opportunites in each of our adventure programs, as well as paid field internships. Employment opportunities can always be found on this page. We are also always in need of volunteers in the field. For more information on volunteering and the volunteer application form, please visit this page.
