The Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis is seeking volunteer instructors to teach inquiry-based school programs.
The 79-acre Missouri Botanical Garden offers a variety of fun, informative school programs for children in kindergarten through eighth grades, from a “Rainforest Rendezvous” to “A Seasonal Snapshot.”
Volunteer instructors are asked to make a commitment of four hours, one day a week, from September through December and February through May. Instructors typically teach classes as a team, leading groups of approximately 10 students.
Free weeklong volunteer instructor training will take place at the Missouri Botanical Garden on Monday, Aug. 13, through Friday, Aug. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Volunteers will learn inquiry-based outdoor teaching strategies and have many opportunities to observe school groups and practice teaching before being assigned to lead a group.
For more information, people should contact Jackie Juras, 314-577-5187 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
