Volunteer Your Time
School Programs: Gain experience working with local students by helping to lead WEN’s school programming. Lead a station helping students collect and identify macroinvertebrates or explore where drinking water comes from in the classroom with WEN’s groundwater model. WEN works with K-12 classes both in the field and in the classroom. Field trips occur in the spring and fall during school hours. Volunteers working with School Programs are required to attend a volunteer training.
Office/Gear Assistance: Volunteer in the office with a variety of tasks such as writing blog posts or maintaining gear. No training required.
Photographer: Help document WEN’s programming to keep our website and marketing materials up to date. Photograph school programs, Stream Team, and other WEN events. No training required. Contact WEN to get involved!
Become an Intern
Are you a student at the University of Montana? Become a WEN intern to fulfill a service learning requirement or earn internship credits. WEN offers services and opportunities to undergraduate students and graduate students alike. We work hard to find ways to incorporate our volunteer’s individual interests and creativity into their work. Please note that volunteer training will not count towards service learning hours. AmeriCorps Internships are also available through WEN.
Internships with WEN are dispersed among our many programs depending upon the interest of the student and the number of credit hours needed. Internships are typically limited to 1-2 credits, translating to 3-10 hours/week.
An internship with WEN will often involve some field component, but can be focused a number of different ways. Some past projects and examples include: field program assistant, curriculum development, WEN Flagship program assistant, technology, community outreach, equipment and database management, grant development and more. We are open to your ideas!
