Do you have an interest in the natural world? Would you like to learn more about it and share your enthusiasm with children? If so, you have an exciting opportunity to join a group of like-minded people who make a difference in our community. Become an Environmental Educator at Sheldrake Environmental Center and learn to connect children with nature.
Our training includes:
Workshops in nature studies and teaching techniques.
Observations with our experienced naturalists.
Ongoing enrichment classes.
Commitment upon completion of the training course:
Graduates will assist, co-teach, and eventually lead local elementary school classes and outdoor nature programs.
Trained teachers are asked to volunteer on select mornings during the spring and fall that work with their schedule.
Benefits include contributing an important service to your community, continuing your education through ongoing enrichment classes, and being part of a group of people who share your environmental values and goals.
These classes are free.
Year-Round VEE Training
In addition to our fall program of training classes, we offer individual training programs for volunteers who are ready to start at other times of the year. After meeting with our director of education, you will be provided with a personalized program. The program will include directed readings, lesson-plan prep, and mentoring with current VEEs. Emphasis is placed on mentoring and in-the-field training.
