Environmental Education Coordinator
August 6, 2021
The Education Coordinator coordinates the community outreach and education for Alice Ferguson Foundation programs. The Education Coordinator will help shape discussion and build momentum in communities to address the issue of litter through AFF’s Trash Free Communities grant. Target areas will include Washington, D.C. Wards 5, 6, 7, 8, and other communities as directed. The Education Coordinator will work directly with local groups, residents, businesses, schools, and community leaders through one-on-one meetings, presentations, tabling events, and other activities. The Education Coordinator will help community members find resources, communicate community needs to local government agencies and elected officials, and identify opportunities for collaboration. They will also assist with the coordination of Annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup, and Adopt-A-Stream programs.
The Coordinator will also lead virtual and onsite ‘field studies’ for elementary, middle and high school students providing NGSS standards-based lessons while embracing the cultural heritage of the Potomac River watershed and promoting stewardship of natural resources in national and state parks.
