If interested in visiting Bend, Oregon, your experience starts with us. The New York Times rates Bend as a top global destination for "great outdoors" and "craft brewing". Outdoor activities include hiking and climbing at Smith Rock and biking and skiing at Mt. Bachelor, among others. You'll also have a chance to tour dozens of micro-breweries.

Our program will allow you to meet people across the globe and learn more about the hospitality industry! You will also be asked to learn about our city and share your knowledge with guests. Because alcohol is served on-site, candidates must be age 21+.
