City Green is looking for enthusiastic volunteer outdoor field trip educators to work with students PreK-6th grade at City Green’s Farm Eco-Center and Learning Garden. City Green hosts classes from northern NJ school districts with a focus on schools from urban at-risk communities. These outdoor field trips are used as an opportunity to enhance students’ academic achievement through hands-on experiential learning and interaction with the natural world.
Volunteers will be trained to work as field trip educators to provide lessons on gardening and farming, sustainable agriculture, healthy eating and cooking, animal husbandry, native plants and wildlife, and a variety of environmental topics.
Spring field trips are held throughout the month of May, and fall field trips are held in October. Volunteer shifts are Monday –Friday and are typically 8:30am – 11am and/or 11:30am - 2pm. Time commitments should be 1-2 days per week, 3-6 hours per day. Experience working in child education or an environmental field is preferred but not required.
