The UVM Watershed Alliance (UVM WA) aims to increase awareness and knowledge of watershed issues in Vermont youth. Each spring and fall, we hire 4-6 undergraduate students who are interested in water resources and watershed education, and would like to gain experience teaching in the field and classroom as a Watershed Educator.
Watershed Educators receive training in stream ecology and watershed science, group management in the field and classroom, and teaching science as inquiry. Educators are expected to work 50+ hours between March and early June (spring season), or between late August and early November (fall season), to fulfill the requirements to receive 1 internship credit or receive payment as a temporary employee ($10/hr). Travel costs are reimbursed. Work-study is available for those who qualify.
Program Assistants are hired on a semester-basis and provide support to the program coordinator. Students with curriculum writing, teaching, stream ecology/watershed science, GIS or website development experience are encouraged to apply.
If interested, please fill out the Watershed Educator Application and upload your resume, and submit it online.
