Volunteer Opportunities - Northwest Regional Educational Service District’s Outdoor Science School
The Northwest Regional Educational Service District’s Outdoor Science School program operates in the fall and spring of each academic year to provide outdoor education to attending 6th grade students at residential, overnight camps in the Willamette Valley and along the Oregon coast. To provide this opportunity to our students, we bring on high school and college-aged counselors to volunteer for a week in Spring or Fall, assisting in the education and engagement of our 6th graders.
In return for the volunteered time and efforts of the counselors the program can offer up to 90 service hours, two Educational credits through Portland Community College, and hands-on experience working with youth in an outdoor educational environment.
