Working with the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance allows you to play in integral part in helping us fulfil our mission. By providing education for thousands of school aged children each year, and maintaining the fields, wetlands, and forest of the park, VCPA ensures the park remains a vital resource for many years to come.
Van Cortlandt Park Alliance seeks two (2) Part-time Environmental Educators who are motivated, self directed, and energetic with strong interest in youth development and outdoor environmental work to lead education and volunteer programs in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx.
Reporting to the Environmental & Garden Education Program Director, the Part-time Environmental Educators will be responsible for teaching outdoor environmental education programs to children and teens with the goal of encouraging students’ awareness and appreciation of the environment, broadening students’ knowledge of science concepts, and fostering students’ commitment to the protection of the natural environment. Van Cortlandt Park’s “outdoor classroom” includes an educational garden, woodland trails, wetlands, and pond.
Weekdays: Programs for elementary school kids include exploration of the pond ecosystem, forest hikes, and hands-on urban farming and composting in VCPA’s Garden & Compost site.
Weekends: Programs include garden exploration days for pre-K children and their caregivers and a drop-off class for kids ages 7-11 years old, focused on composting, and urban farming.
