About

Are you passionate about science and nature? Do you enjoy inspiring children and working as part of a team? Then Environmental Volunteers has the role for you!

We’re looking for reliable, friendly people who are committed to inspiring a love of science and nature in future generations. Our School Programs Volunteers share their love of the natural world with local elementary school kids. Working in teams of 3 or 4, School Programs Volunteers engage with small groups of children directly in a classroom setting, involving them in hands-on, discovery-based learning.

Skills needed:

  • Friendly disposition
  • Ability to work with children
  • Passion for science, nature, teaching, and environmental stewardship
  • Support for the EV’s mission to promote the understanding of and responsibility for the environment through hands-on science education.

This role is perfect for someone who is available during the school day, and has a passion for children and education. No previous experience is needed for this role and training will be provided for all successful applicants.

Our training courses ensure that all volunteers have the teaching or interpretation skills necessary for working with their audience, and are confident in the material they are teaching.

You will always be supported in the classroom by other volunteers, and a teacher will always be present. We offer flexible hours, locations and subject matters, so you can select the opportunities that best fit your lifestyle.

If you want to join the EV, or just want more information, please contact Nikki, our Volunteer Coordinator, at Volunteer@EVols.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
