Each year thousands of students participate in education programs offered by the Mount St. Helens Institute. MSHI programs reach students in their classroom and bring them to the mountain for day or overnight programs. Education Volunteers help support our school programs staff by assisting and leading guided educational hikes, teaching in-class activities, supporting our overnight programs, and more. If you enjoy working with children, primarily in grades 4th - 12th, and have a passion for teaching and sharing the wonders of the natural world with others, we’d love to have you join us as an Education Volunteer.

Required Qualifications:

  • Enjoy working with youth from diverse backgrounds.
  • Documented, current basic first aid & CPR training.
  • Excellent customer service skills.
  • At least 18 years old.
  • Have access to reliable transportation and have current car insurance that meets Washington state minimums for liability coverage.

Time Commitment:
We ask that all education volunteers, volunteer for a minimum of 2 shifts a month during busy program seasons, which run from March to June and September to October.

Recruitment Information:

Education Volunteers must attend training as part of their volunteer commitment. Because of this required training, we recruit Education volunteers only at the beginning of the summer season. Recruitment begins in February and ends in April.
