      Application Deadline: July 6, 2009

      Start Date: August 17, 2009

      The mission of the Center for Land-Based Learning (CLBL) is to engage
      youth in learning experiences on the land, ensuring that they develop an
      understanding for the critical interplay of agriculture, nature and
      community. We achieve this mission primarily through our yearlong
      experiential education programs for high school students, the FARMS
      Leadership Program and SLEWS. The SLEWS Program (Student and Landowner
      Education and Watershed Stewardship) engages students in habitat
      restoration projects that enhance classroom learning, develop leadership
      skills, and benefit the land.


      The SLEWS Program strives to provide meaningful educational experiences
      while achieving the most effective ecological impact on the land. The
      coordinator must therefore have a strong background in, and passion for,
      experiential education, habitat restoration and program coordination.

      This is a full time 40 hr/week position. Occasional evenings and
      weekends will be necessary.

      Specific job responsibilities will include:

      restoration projects for SLEWS Program field days

      * Recruiting and training up to 50 partners and volunteers to
      serve as mentors for student field days
      * Handling all logistics for student field days including ordering
      food, bringing tools, providing educational materials as well as
      coordinating with partners, teachers and mentors
      * Communicating regularly with participating students, teachers,
      partners and mentors about ongoing program activities
      * Developing and maintaining effective organizational systems for
      SLEWS Program supplies and equipment
      * Uploading and organizing SLEWS online field day reports, photos,
      and video
      * Creating outreach materials such as PowerPoint presentations,
      posters, slideshows and the SLEWS video
      * Working with local media to publicize SLEWS program activities
      * Coordinating a youth intern program for up to fifteen students
      * Helping to raise funds and secure donations for SLEWS Program
      * Supporting teachers in developing and implementing classroom
      curricula to complement field day activities
      * Speaking on behalf of the SLEWS Program and CLBL at conferences
      and workshops
      * Helping to plan and implement CLBL events


      The Sacramento Valley SLEWS Coordinator should be a leader with a strong
      commitment to education, agriculture, ecology and land stewardship. The
      Coordinator should be self-motivated, flexible and capable of working
      effectively both alone and with a larger team. Qualified applicants
      should have a Bachelor's or Master's Degree (or equivalent experience)
      in Education, Ecology or Agriculture.
