How do I become a volunteer or an intern?

1. Fill out a volunteer application by following this link.

  • Then, email water@montanawatershed.org to schedule a meeting with our Executive Director, Deb Fassnacht, to discuss your interests.

2. Attend a Volunteer Training.

  • All volunteers working with WEN’s School Programs or Stream Team must attend volunteer training outlined below. Training occurs out at the river at the beginning of the seasons. These training sessions orient volunteers to WEN’s monitoring protocols and thoroughly cover school program learning objectives and tips for working with students. 

3. Attend your first program!​

  • School Programs: First-time volunteers will shadow/observe their first school program to get a feel for WEN programming in action. Field stream monitoring programs consist of three stations, which students cycle through. New volunteers will work with a seasoned volunteer at one of the stations. Typically, first time volunteers observe the first group of students, team-teach the second, and lead the third. WEN works with volunteers with varied teaching experience and can adjust this progression as needed.
