Love wildlife? Enjoy working with young people? This is a very unique opportunity with Wolf-Ways - a wolf education program sponsored by Oregon Wild and Wolf Haven International. The following link provides more information about the program: http://oregonwild.org/wildlife/wolves/wolfways-wolf-education
The true nature of wolves is widely misunderstood. Our programs are designed to develop an understanding of and appreciation for wolves as an important species in the ecosystem.
This is a fun and rewarding opportunity. It entails helping to present engaging science based programs to groups and classrooms of young people ages pre-k through 8th grade. WolfWays educators work in a team of two presenters. Your preference of age range to work with will be considered.
No previous knowledge is needed, as programs and training are provided. Previous teaching experience is helpful, but not necessary. Public speaking confidence is important.The location and schedule will vary, as it depends on the venue requesting the presentation. Most of our programs are during the week. A minimum availability of two days/month is required, plus training time. The actual number of volunteer days will vary according to venue requests. Transportation to and from presentation venues are reimbursed. This opportunity is perfect for those who are retired or work part-time jobs or jobs with flexible hours.
