    Community Living and Personal Wellbeing

    Shambhala Mountain Center is located in a very rural, rugged environment in Northern Colorado. Living at high altitude can present many physical and mental challenges. Core staff live in close contact with one another. Privacy is at a minimum and the closest major town is Fort Collins, approximately one hour away by personal car. Please consider these factors carefully when answering the following questions.


    Please list two current business references who will provide a character reference for you. A character reference is different from an employment verification in that it tells us more about your work ethic and your ability to work within a professional setting. If your reference will only be able to provide an employment verification, we will request an alternate reference from you. If you are unable to secure a character reference, we will not be able to consider your application for employment.
