Volunteer | Southeast Pennsylvania
A local Training Coordinator uses the PA Master Naturalist curriculum, tools, and resources to plan, coordinate, facilitate, and serve as the host of a 50-hour training course for adult volunteers. Participants will learn about Pennsylvania’s ecosystems, natural resources, and techniques to educate others. They will be introduced to resources that will help create connections between volunteers and conservation projects. This position may serve as the instructor of classes and/or seek expert instructors to teach the class and field course content. Training Coordinators will receive required training, at no cost, and a manual that describes the roles and responsibilities of their position in detail.
To become an Training Coordinator you must hold a minimum of either a Bachelor’s degree in environmental science, education, or related field OR be able to demonstrate comparable practical experience providing natural science or related education programs. Training Coordinators usually work for an organization, agency, or group that places a priority on natural science-based environmental education. We refer to this organization as Coordinating Partner or Host Organization. This organization must also be willing to support you as an Training Coordinator and be willing to offer a PA Master Naturalist volunteer training course.
