Junior Educator Volunteers

image descriptionThe Education & Volunteer departments are excited to begin our applicant process for the 2014 Summer Junior Educator Program. We are looking for responsible students, high school freshmen through seniors who are interested in volunteering for our AquaCamps and Public Programs teams. Experience with public speaking is a plus, but not required. Junior Educators will need to commit to onsite training days and to working two days per week* during the summer. *Accommodations can be made for prior commitments within reason and with ample notice.*
