ORGANIZATION: Cambridge School Volunteers, Inc. (CSV)

  • 2 people are interested

If you love the outdoors and have enthusiasm for and curiosity about in any of these areas- nature, drawing, ecology, biology, science education, or botany-join our Tuesday morning cohort of Art & Science in One school volunteers this spring.

In Art & Science in One (AS1) we train one-to-one volunteer mentors in outdoor nature journaling with children, then pair each volunteer with a child in a classroom of elementary school students (Grade 4 and Grade 5). You'll be helping your student develop basic science skills of observation and documentation in an outdoor environment. We require a commitment to attend seven dates (two short training sessions and five meetups/excursions with students). Ask us for our detailed schedule.

Support from our on-site staff is available throughout the program; classroom teacher also accompanies the outings.
