Help us bring history to life for area schoolchildren by joining our team as a field-trip educator. Every Spring, the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (DLNHC), including the National Canal Museum, welcomes over 2,000 3rd-5th graders to our Immersion Days program.
Held alongside the Lehigh Canal in beautiful Hugh Moore Park, Immersion Days engages children with how people lived and worked on the canals during the 19th and early 20th centuries and includes a ride on our mule-drawn canal boat. Educators present fun, hands-on activities that combine history and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) concepts.
As an educator, you might be teaching children how to blow a conch shell horn, demonstrating blacksmithing techniques, or explaining how simple machines make work easier. There are a variety of activities, and you can specialize in one or learn several.
The DLNHC is looking for dependable, positive individuals who enjoy working with children, are comfortable speaking in front of groups, and are comfortable working in an outdoor setting. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary – just a willingness to learn. Educators are dressed in period-appropriate clothing, which is provided by the DLNHC.
This position is subject to child abuse/criminal history clearances.
