Share your love of Nature & Wildlife with young students by volunteering as a Field Trip Education Volunteer at the new Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay! You will directly assist the Programs Specialist by acting as an on-site point of contact for school groups who have made reservations to conduct self-guided field trips at this beautiful new facility. Your job will consist of welcoming groups to the center by giving them an overview of the facility and an introduction to their activities. You will explain expectations to the students as well as check out & check in materials they will be using. This position involves the typical physical requirements of an office setting, along with occasional lifting and standing. Some outdoor activities might also be necessary.
Shifts are available Wednesdays or Thursdays from 9:30 am to 11:00 am or 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm. Volunteers must commit to at least two shifts (3 hours) per week. Training and background check will be provided prior to serving. This volunteer opportunity is offered through Davis Co. Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and is for people age 55 or better. Benefits of volunteering through RSVP include mileage reimbursement for travel between home and the volunteer station, as well as supplemental insurance coverage while serving.

Mission Statement

Davis County RSVP empowers and enables Americans 55+ in addressing community needs and concerns through volunteering.

Description

Americans 55+ have a lifetime of experience to share and the desire to make a real difference in their world. Members of this mature generation have managed households, been business owners and nurses, farmers and salespeople, artists and executives. Now they are ready to put their unique talents and expertise to work in their communities, and enrich their own lives in the process.

RSVP is the connection to aid volunteers in choosing how and where to serve, time of service, causes to support, and how to get started. RSVP provides pre-service orientation, training from the organization where service is given, supplemental insurance while on duty, and, in some cases, a mileage reimbursement to cover the cost of travel between home and the volunteer site.

When you volunteer, you're not just helping others - you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
