Overview

Ecology Project International’s Yellowstone
Program is looking for passionate environmental educators and outdoor
leaders to join our field instructor teams and help lead our summer
Yellowstone Wildlife education programs!

*Assistant Instructors* guide students in the preparation of all meals in
the field, maintain EPI field equipment, transport students, lead students
in leadership activities/games, and support field instructors in conducting
all courses. Throughout the season, assistant instructors will have
opportunities to practice and grow in their confidence and ability to teach
relevant science and ecology lessons and manage student group dynamics and
safety in a field setting. Upon successful completion of a summer season,
assistant instructors will be encouraged to continue their development by
stepping into a position as a field instructor for EPI Yellowstone’s
following educational program season (January-August 2023).

Because of the diversity of Yellowstone participants and EPI staff, all
instructors and assistant instructors should have the skills to address
bias in their work and be culturally responsive in interactions with
students and co-workers. Field staff are encouraged to identify ways in
which we can enhance inclusivity in planning and implementing our programs.

*The priority application deadline is Sunday 2/20, with interviews
scheduled on a rolling basis. So apply today! *

About Ecology Project International

EPI is an international non-profit dedicated to addressing critical conservation issues through field-based partnerships between local experts and middle/high school students. We engage adolescents from local communities and visiting youth from other regions in applied hands-on science and conservation as they learn about and help protect threatened species and habitats. EPI’s programs in the U.S. and Latin America inspire the next generation of environmental leaders to engage in conservation efforts at home and around the world.
