Education interns work with park staff to develop and present curriculum-based programs for students in grades K-12. In addition, interns may present or assist with special programs, such as summer camps, Discovery Day labs, scout programs, and teacher workshops. Programs are offered both in the park and in the classroom.

Due to the variety of park themes and resources and the diversity of groups served, interns have the opportunity to learn about and teach a wide variety of topics. Qualified applicants must have experience working with children, think and act creatively, possess excellent communication and problem solving skills, have a sense of wonder, and be able to meet the physical and mental demands of teaching outdoors.

Commitment
Winter/Spring positions run from early January into late May. Summer/Fall positions run from early June through the middle of November. Interns are expected to work 40 hours/week and complete the entire duration of their internship.

Benefits
Interns receive a monthly stipend of $900 and park housing. Uniform shirts, jackets, and hats are provided. Housing is usually a fully furnished shared apartment with utilities provided.

Current Openings
Position descriptions and application information will be available here when the application period opens starting September 1, 2015.

For additional information, please contact Mark DeGregorio, the education and outreach coordinator, at 970-586-3777 or by e-mail.
