americorps logoTwo Positions Available – One in Seattle, One at Cama Beach State Park

The Youth Educator will work with CWB’s Education Director to plan, schedule, promote, and teach both indoor and outdoor field trips for students from pre-school through high school and reach new audiences of under served youth. Many programs are taught on the water in our traditional boats.  During events and during summer months, the Youth Educator will work with and supervise youth interns and volunteers.

The ideal Youth Educator finds joy in teaching and has strong organizational skills, and an awareness of safety. Strong written and verbal communication is a must, as is a demonstrated ability to solve problems.  Sailing and boat handling skills are required. The Youth Educator will work with a wide variety of youth. Individual initiative as well as strong team work are both key to this position. Because CWB covers a wide scope of activities which vary by season, each AmeriCorps volunteer will be involved in a wide range of projects.

Applicants must meet AmeriCorps Individual Placement guidelines, including being between the ages of 18 and 25.  These are 10.5 month positions beginning October 1, 2010.

AmeriCorps members receive:

•    Living stipend of $1,050 per month (before taxes)
•    Training and experience
•    Subsidized childcare, if qualified
•    Health Insurance (member only)
•    Student loan forbearance
•    $5,350 Education Award (upon successful completion of service term)
