Join us on the Cahaba River in the heart of Alabama! Our 2017 Fall Season is fast approaching, and we are looking for enthusiastic and qualified educators to become a part of the Cahaba Environmental Center family!
Nestled within a deep bend of one of the most biodiverse rivers in the US, the Cahaba Environmental Center (CEC) is a focused on inspiring students of all ages to become stewards of the natural world through hands-on, experiential environmental science programming that connects them to the Cahaba River. Our programs offer school groups the opportunity to live and study for 1-5 days at our center, exploring standards-aligned content while utilizing the US’s fifth most ecologically diverse river and surrounding forest as a classroom and laboratory. Beyond providing a deep connection to place, the CEC also facilitates social and emotional learning, connecting students to their peers and to themselves. Learn more about us by visiting our website!
Environmental Educators will have the opportunity to share the wonders of the natural world, create a sense of community, foster a fun and safe learning environment and facilitate hands-on activities about topics such as forest and stream ecology, watershed science, Native American culture, and geologic processes. Coming into our second year as an organization, CEC Educators are more than just staff members. Our educators play a pivotal role in shaping and developing the program as a whole!
Compensation includes $300/week plus room and board. CEC educators will enjoy a private room and shared bath in new staff housing that features a community living space, shared kitchen, and laundry facility. Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree, have experience with students of various ages, and demonstrate creativity, enthusiasm, maturity, initiative, a sense of humor, flexibility and team spirit.
