The White Pine FireKeeper position is a one-of-a-kind Mentor in training opportunity for Indianapolis youth. FireKeepers work side-by-side with our lead instructors. Responsibilities are customized to the FireKeepers interest and include leadership roles in mentoring youth, facilitating guilds, leading stories and circles as well as clean up chores.

Participants must be 13 years or older and have a passion for the outdoors. This is, at a minimum, a one year, 10 hour-a-week commitment. FireKeepers must first attend summer training before working alongside instructors. 

FireKeepers will find all of the benefits of being at the inner core of the White Pine community as well as exclusive opportunities.
