Position: Education Outreach and Engagement Volunteer

Organization: Sierra Club Canada - Atlantic Canada Chapter http://www.sierraclub.ca/atlantic

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Sierra Club Canada -- Atlantic Canada Chapter is a

non-profit environmental organization based out of Halifax,

NS. The mission of Sierra Club Canada is to focus

on five overriding threats: loss of animal and plant species;

deterioration of the planet's oceans and atmosphere; the

ever-growing presence of toxic chemicals in all living things;

destruction of our remaining wilderness; and spiraling

population growth and over consumption.

Since 2003, the Atlantic Canada Chapter has delivered

education programs in the Atlantic Provinces. The programs

are all hands-on, interactive and action-based.

For 2009/2010, our education program will focus on

sustainability and the Eco-Footprint. Through a joint high

school-elementary school mentorship program called

EcoBuddies, older students assume leadership roles and

deliver sustainability education to younger children.

We are currently looking for two (2) dedicated volunteers 

to help with the coordination of the EcoBuddies program 

in Nova Scotia. These volunteers will work out of the 

Halifax office of the Sierra Club Canada.


- Demonstrated commitment to environmental sustainability

- Experience working with young people and in schools is an asset

- Must have strong communication skills (written and verbal)

- Willingness to engage in administrative work when required

- Willingness to commit 3-5 hours a week


- Help with coordination of the EcoBuddies program

- Assist in delivery of Eco-Footprint presentations to grade 6 students

- Update and maintain the EcoBuddies website

- Seek out media opportunities

We are looking for outgoing, driven, and conscientious 

volunteers. If you want to gain meaningful experience while 

volunteering in a fun office environment then the Education 

Outreach and Engagement Volunteer position may be for you!
