Do you like science, the environment, and high school students? Be part of DC EnvironMentors' new project to bring scientific research projects, environmental education, hands-on experiments, and exposure to environmental careers to DC high school students. DC EnvironMentors' EnvironMentality Project will make the EnvironMentors curriculum accessible to more under-resourced youth by functioning as a class-integrated model that introduces students to the basic scientific research process through cultivating skills and confidence in science inquiry.
DC EnvironMentors is looking for a Project Coordinator to work on this new classroom-integrated EnvironMentors high school project. The Project Coordinator would be responsible for facilitating the DC EnvironMentors' EnvironMentality project within the classroom and coordinating events such as speaker panels and field trips for the students. This position would be best suited for someone who is interested in high school youth development, environmental education, classroom experience, or scientific research writing. This position will be a full time paid position. Anticipated start date is mid- August, with the ability to commit to the 2010-2011 academic year.
Please send your resume, a research paper (scientific if available) writing sample, and 3 references to Jacklyn Shafir at jshafir(at)ncseonline.org by July 30th.
