Environmental Education Intern

Description 
Falls Brook Centre is an environmental non-profit that works to foster thriving local communities through education. We support schools and communities to support environmental learning for all ages, with workshops and educational programming.

This position is to support our Education Lead in the delivery of STEM-based environmental education to rural schools in New Brunswick. Our classroom-based program, Eco-Citizens Club has strong ties to the science curriculum and has greatly increased the students' grasp and retention of environmental and scientific principles. The teachers have consistently requested for us to return to their classes as they have noticed the increase in the student's enthusiasm for the sciences and environmental education directly due to our programming.

The rural schools we attend are in some of the poorest areas of the province where resources are very tight and teachers are not able to get the same training opportunities due to their locations. In September we work out the individualized plan for the year with each teacher to address their needs and teach a component of the science curriculum to their classes with fun activities, practical applications and the real information in an age-appropriate manner. The year wraps up with a Festival where each class can present what they have learned to the other classes and schools in the program. Two classes have presented on how their schools can transition to a greenhouse to support the cafeteria, three have concentrated on carbon-neutral energy sources and a number of children have now identified environmental science or other scientific careers, others have identified technical or engineering careers. This is a large increase in the ability for these rural kids to see opportunities in the new economy instead of seeing these fields as inaccessible to them.This support position will be of great help with the in-classroom delivery of the program and will provide the Intern with opportunities to grow their organisational and communication skills under an extremely capable and kind mentor, Charlotte Flores who reinvented the Education program to what it is today.

Applicants should be passionate about the natural world and able to bring that passion to students. Someone who is outgoing, organized and bilingual would be preferred. We are based out of our office in Fredericton and make frequent trips to Carleton and Victoria counties. There are some overnight stays in the Glassville, NB area to accommodate multi-day programming.

Due to funding requirements, applicants must be between the ages of 15-30.

Duties & Responsibilities 
-Helping to build the program plan, lesson plans and activity sequences with the Education Lead, Charlotte Flores.
-Delivering the program in-classroom with enthusiasm for learning and kindness for all learning types and speeds.
-Collecting feedback from teachers, administration and students and collating it for continuous improvement.
-Designing and delivering own pieces within the program, under supervision.
-Sharing stories from the program on social media, website and other outlets.
-Delivering occasional weekend workshops or carrying out promotional activities for the organisation (booth at market, etc.).
