Garden Education Assistant

March 26th-June 8th (10 weeks),
Hours 2+ hours/week, unpaid/volunteer

Garden Education Assistants will assist in nature/gardens programming in Groundwork Somerville’s after-school “Garden Arts” clubs this spring.  You’ll help run activities involving the arts, gardening, and nature with groups of 8-12 students, grades K-5.  All programs operate during after-school hours (2:30-5:30pm) on the same schedule each week, so you need to be able to commit to one day (1-2 hours) per week for the full 10 weeks of the program. Experience working with youth ages 5-12 and comfort being outside and dirty required! Additional leadership opportunities are available for experienced volunteers.  Please email cover letter (can just be the body of an email), resume, and weekly availability to Lee at ladwyer@groundworksomerville.org.
