Established in 2020, the Alterra Mountain Company Community Foundation (AMCCF) is a public charity that was created to provide financial support to the members of the communities in which Alterra Mountain Company operates. To date, AMCCF has focused on granting emergency relief and hardship assistance to those in need within the communities surrounding Alterra’s North American destinations. Grants have been available to individuals and nonprofit organizations. Moving forward, AMCCF will start implementing its new strategic plan, which will focus the organization’s scope on providing mental health support in our mountain communities, while continuing our emergency relief and hardship assistance grant program.

The Foundation is seeking a program manager to support our new mental health program, which consists of three projects:

  1. Grants to support community screenings of “The Paradise Paradox”
  2. Grants to provide specialized psychotherapies for ski patrollers and heli guides
  3. Optimizing access to quality behavioral healthcare: building a toolkit, hosting convener events, and creating strategic plans

This contract will span through July 2025 and should achieve the following:

  1. Support around the RFP process to identify and onboard external experts to help design the convener events
  2. Planning, execution and follow-up of 1-2 pilot convener events
  3. Management of all regular convener events moving forward
  4. Support and follow-up in the creation of strategic plans for each mountain community that holds a convener event
  5. Design and distribution of the toolkit available to mountain communities

Ongoing support for the Foundation’s two grant programs related to mental health—community screenings of “The Paradise Paradox” and specialized psychotherapies for ski patrol and heli guides—will be requested as well.


  • Experience working with healthcare systems, including the intersectionality of how different levels of government (e.g., county and public health) work together, how medical providers work with law enforcement, how schools address mental health, etc.
  • Knowledge and experience working in community health
  • Understanding of behavioral health
  • Experience working successfully in rural/mountain/underserved community healthcare systems

The budget for this work is $6,000 – $8,000 / month over the term of the contract.

Please submit a cover letter and resume to be considered. Only qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview. Please outline your knowledge of and experience with mental health, preferably in rural or mountain communities.
