Time Commitment: 5 months (January to May) *As needed for educational programs


Age Requirement: 18 years or older

Volunteer Description:

The education volunteer is an “on call” position and does not require a commitment of consistent and often volunteer work. This position allows volunteers to assist with the programs and events on a non consistent basis.  Basically, if there is a shortage of interns and extra help is needed or if a big event is taking place, then the education volunteers will be contacted.
