ENVIRONMENTAL NATURE CENTER RECRUITING LEADERS
Local Nature Center seeking responsible high school students for leadership opportunity working with young children.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 5, 2018 - The Environmental Nature Center (ENC) is accepting applications for its Leaders in Training (LIT) program. LITs are high school students that volunteer to help with the ENC’s Nature Camps during school breaks. For more information visit encenter.org/volunteer-enc/students/leaders.
“The program is a perfect opportunity for high school students to develop leadership skills,” said Bo Glover, ENC Executive Director. “It also offers room for teens to grow out of their comfort zones and blossom into young adults with skills that they can bring into their careers and other future leadership roles.”
Recruitment is in full swing for all 8 sessions of Summer Nature Camp from June 25th to August 16th. LITS must submit an application and reference form, be interviewed by ENC staff and attend a mandatory training. LITs must commit to volunteering for at least two sessions.
“We are looking for individuals who show enthusiasm for environmental stewardship and for working with children,” said Lori Whalen, the ENC’s Assistant Director. "Ideal candidates show a history of responsible behavior and present a capacity to take initiative without the need for a lot of direction."
