Become a School Ambassador for the 2023/24 School Year
We are looking for volunteers to serve as school ambassadors! Our school ambassadors will assist with tabling events within an articulation area during the school year. An articulation area is a grouping of elementary, middle schools, and high schools that feed into and are geographically close to one another. The monthly time commitment is approximately 2 hours and events typically take place after school. A great volunteer will have excellent customer service skills, a positive attitude, a passion for Outdoor Lab and environmental education, confidence speaking to groups of people, and transportation. If you are interested in becoming a school ambassador, please click here to send us an email.
We are seeking volunteers to help with various administrative needs for the Outdoor Lab Foundation at our office in Wheat Ridge. We are looking for volunteers who can occasionally assist with in-office projects as they arise. Volunteers would not need to commit to more than 1-2 hours a week.
