Description

The School Sustainability Associates (SSAs) provide opportunities for teachers, students and schools- based groups to directly contribute to the sustainability of their school and community by providing educational tours at our two Education Transfer Stations, in-class teacher training and instructional support for student action projects that enable elementary, middle, and high school classrooms and student groups throughout Alameda County. Teaching a curriculum to students, while modeling lessons for teachers, students are engaged in sustainability issues through an educational approach which may include: an introduction of environmental principles, student-led environmental audits of school and home resource use, activities for student action to reduce the school’s environmental footprint, outreach and education by students to the larger community, and reflection on and celebration of progress and achievements. In addition, SSAs may work and collaborate on agency initiatives, like school infrastructure, provide technical assistance and training to diverse audiences and promote campaigns, such as the agency’s Stop Food Waste community outreach campaign, and Lose Your Lawn project. School Sustainability Associates work in a fast-paced team environment at schools, at the educational field trip centers, residences, at the agency, and in multiple community venues.

The position(s) receive day-to-day direction from a StopWaste Program Manager and Project Coordinators and reports to work at the StopWaste agency office and/or the Educational Field Trip Centers as assigned. Candidate must be willing to travel to school sites throughout the county on a weekly basis.
