We have an opportunity in the Danny Woo Community Garden to hire an Apple Corps/ Americorps Volunteer Coordinator. This position will both help oversee garden volunteer activities as well as teach children and youth in our children’s garden program. The position description is attached below.
We are hoping to find someone that:
- has 1 full season of gardening or farming experience
- has taught or worked with children for 1 year or more
- has familiarity with and interest in social justice
- Applicants who have knowledge of the International District and/ or the ability to speak Cantonese, Mandarin, or Korean are encouraged to apply
This request has an unfortunately urgent timeline because one of our Apple Corps members set to serve for the upcoming year has dropped out and there is now a time crunch due to the Americorps. hiring deadline. We are re-posting the position to the Americorps. website which should become live by Friday 8/22. We hope to review applications by the end of next week (Thursday 8/28).
To apply, go to the website listed below and use the search near the righthand side of the page. Enter ‘environement’ or ‘children and youth’ into the interests section along with ‘washington’ in the location section to find the position posting. It is titled Apple Corps Danny Woo Garden Volunteer Coordinator. Information on how to apply will be posted there.
Please note that this is not a staff position. Americorps. is a community service program. Participants receive a $1,125 monthly living stipend along with a $5,000 education award upon completion. They would of course also be able to work with the amazing people at InterIm CDA, meet inspiring gardeners, and glean some veggies.
