  • Wind & Oar / AmeriCorps Member '22-'23

    This position is in partnership between the Confluence Environmental Center, AmeriCorps Program, and Wind & Oar Boat School. Wind & Oar Boat School is a unique educational organization that uses boat building as a platform for engaging and inspiring youth in grades 5-12 to “own” their education. The project-based learning approach asks them to reflect, reason, and collaborate in an environment where failures are as important as successes. Our hands-on, minds-on programs offer an integrated curriculum linking math, science, and art and design, with a focus on the Willamette River watershed and ecology, encouraging students to connect with the out of doors. This AmeriCorps Member will serve as an assistant program instructor and curriculum builder, while developing their own woodworking skills and guiding students through related side projects (80%).
    The Member will participate in Confluence led leadership development activities which include: Leadership Development Training Series, completing a Change Agent Project (CAP), team meetings, National Service events and other self-directed development opportunities (20%).
