About

We're seeking educators! We offer a variety of classes with a focus on consumer skills, healthy eating, food safety, physical activity, food access. MANY agencies in our county request these classes. We need volunteers to train as educators, and help us offer these important skills to our community.

You will receive professional training-our curriculum is solid and easy to use. We typically train new volunteers through shadowing; you will watch and co-teach with one of our educators, which our volunteers find very helpful. You will be given research-based information and learn how to share this information with others using discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on group activities. The training is free and will be conducted at our office in Burlington as well as at social service agencies where we currently offer classes.

Aside from helping your community (which we find VERY important), this volunteer position is also a good opportunity to include teaching and education experience on a resume.

Also--we don't have a single Spanish speaking volunteer but we would absolutely love to welcome a Spanish speaker to our team!

Some of the agencies we serve: Head Start Preschools, Helping Hands Food Bank, Family Promise, SeaMar, Goodwill, numerous local elementary schools, low income housing sites, and much more.
