Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, Education Associate
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust leads and inspires action to conserve and enhance the landscape from Seattle across the Cascade Mountains to Central Washington, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature. The Greenway Education Program plays an important role in connecting youth with the natural world in a setting that is safe and fun. We engage more than 3,000 students in environmental education each year. Many of these students come from culturally diverse schools with a high percentage of students participating in the National School Lunch Program. The Greenway Trust is sponsoring two 10.5-month Education Associate AmeriCorps positions through the Washington Service Corps, a program of the Washington State Employment Security Department. These positions are contingent on funding. Education Associates are an integral part of the Greenway Trust’s highly effective team that works to further land conservation, recreation connections and public engagement across the Greenway landscape in balance with a growing regional population. The Education Associates plays an essential role in the operations of the Greenway Trust by teaching in the classroom, leading outdoor field trips, and facilitating hands-on service learning stewardship events. The Education Associates will serve more closely with the Volunteer Program by supporting weekday and weekend volunteer events during the winter months (roughly mid-November through mid-February). The right candidates will be flexible, organized and a quick learner. This position is ideal for someone who is passionate about teaching and the natural world, who enjoys working as part of a team and who is interested in conserving a magnificent Northwest landscape. The Education Associates are based primarily out of the Greenway Trust’s main office in downtown Seattle, with frequent travel to schools in King County, Tiger Mountain and Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah, and other locations within the Greenway.
