Pipeline Project Environmental Alternative Spring Break – apply now!

Thinking about what to do during Spring Break?

Want to work with amazing young people across the state of Washington?

Apply for Pipeline Project’s 2014 Environmental Alternative Spring Break (EASB) program!

The UW Pipeline Project is sending groups of students to rural and tribal communities throughout Washington State during spring break 2014 to facilitate hands-on environmental education and science projects. You and your team will plan, design, and teach a curriculum in elementary and middle school classrooms while learning more about the community, local ecology, and the environmental and education issues of the region. As part of preparation, you will enroll in a 2-credit planning seminar during Winter Quarter (Thursdays from 4:30-5:50 pm) to develop the lesson plans, fundraise for the program and gain more experience by volunteering in local Seattle classrooms or environmental education organizations for 2-2.5 hours per week. No prior environmental education experience is necessary.

You have the chance to extend your own learning, spark an interest in science and the environment and make a lasting impact on a group of students’ lives.

Interested? Apply now! Applications due by November 17 at 5 pm. Please visit our website for application instructions and materials:
