ACES Educator-in-Training Volunteer

Are you a high school student interested in the field of environmental education? Would you like to develop your outdoor leadership skills? Paired with an ACES educator, E-I-T volunteers assist with daily management of program responsibilities and activities, including hiking, arts and crafts, science investigations and more. Each week will offer a different experience. ACES E-I-T volunteers receive official acknowledgement of their volunteer hours at the end of their service.
