About

The National Audubon Society’s volunteer program aims to inspire lifelong stewardship of our environment and communities, providing individuals the opportunity to develop skills needed for a successful career in conservation. Currently, volunteer opportunities are being offered in the area of Environmental Education.

 Audubon invites you to become a volunteer with Audubon New York’s premier environmental education program, For the Birds! (FTB!)NYC.  For the Birds! is a place-based elementary education program that teaches environmental awareness and appreciation of nature through the study of birds. During multiple visits, students in grades two through six learn about their local, natural environment through indoor and outdoor lessons, field trips, and a conservation project designed to provide or enhance bird habitat in the local community.

For the Birds! volunteers will assist with the implementation of the FTB! program in New York City schools and camps throughout all five boroughs.  S/he will teach this program to multiple classes / summer camps in New York City and will also assist the FTB! Program Director with administrative duties related to the delivery and expansion of the program.  This includes, but is not limited to: curriculum development and revision, materials preparation and inventory, school set up, follow up and wrap up, and other administrative duties as needed.

Volunteers will work closely with the FTB! Program Director to inspire a new generation of conservationists through the study of birds.   Interns will gain experience s in both formal and non-formal environmental education and learn valuable and transferable skills such as project management, curriculum development, volunteer management, and community engagement.
