Open TerraCorps Service Positions

Boston Nature Center- Mass Audubon

Mass Audubon protects 38,000 acres of land throughout Massachusetts, saving birds and other wildlife, and making nature accessible to all. Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center (BNC) is a community-based education center and wildlife sanctuary located in the heart of Boston, in the Mattapan neighborhood.  Its all-inclusive programs promote scientific thinking and ecological learning and are offered on-and off-site, often in collaboration with our many community partners.  Intensive school initiatives, licensed preschools, outreach programs, nationally-accredited camp programs, Youth Leaders program, and public programs are some of the offerings we provide.  BNC features the City of Boston’s first green municipal building and is comprised of 67-acres which includes wetlands, meadows, and forests.

A service member at Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center will be serving in a blended capacity, with 50% of time in a Community Engagement role, and 50% of time spent in a Youth Education role.

Community Engagement Coordinators (CEC)/ Youth Education Coordinators (YEC) build the long-term capacity of their Service Sites by developing culturally inclusive systems, programming, partnerships, and events. By collaborating with community groups, CEC/YECs demonstrate how the sustainable use and conservation of land can help address community needs related to education, public health, economic development, neighborhood revitalization, homelessness, poverty, hunger, and cultural decline. In this role, Members may also engage community members and youth in service learning, experiential education, and inquiry-based science and nature learning projects. CEC/YECs collaborate with schools, libraries, and youth groups on projects that connect people to the natural world, improve science literacy, and encourage healthy lifestyles. By connecting a broader cross-section of people to our natural world, CEC/YECs build bridges that reinforce the connection between land and a sustainable social, economic, and environmental future for all people.

TerraCorps members engage with their supervisors to develop and carry out three or more capacity building projects over the course of the service year. Some of these projects will involve recruiting, training, and/or managing community volunteers. Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center has proposed the following potential projects for their Community Engagement Coordinator:

  • The TerraCorps Member will increase the overall number of educational programs that are free or offered at a greatly reduced price to underrepresented groups in the community, such as people of color, people with disabilities, people living below the poverty line, senior citizens/teens or people newly immigrated to the country. High-quality science and nature programs will be provided at free events across the city including at public libraries, public parks and at the sanctuary to increase the understanding of the natural world, the impact of climate change on local communities, and actions that protect and restore healthy ecosystems.
  • The TerraCorps Member will increase engagement with environmental educators and others who may have been traditionally marginalized in the environmental field. Engagement includes: training opportunities in Boston and across the state for non-profit groups, teachers interested in learning more about teaching outdoors, and people interested in pursuing a new line of work in outdoor education.
  • The TerraCorps member will also provide support to environmental educators across the state by increasing educators’ engagement with Mass Audubon and one of its statewide partners, the Massachusetts Environmental Education Society (MEES). The TerraCorps member will help to engage a more inclusive group of educators to participate in networking events, professional development opportunities, meetings, and committees. Ultimately this work will result in creating and nurturing a more inclusive environmental education network within Massachusetts.

Development of these and other projects will occur during the first two months of service and consider the member’s interests and skills.

Desired Qualifications

  • Strong writing and verbal communication skills
  • Able to serve both independently and as a member of a team
  • Comfort navigating computer software programs (including Microsoft 365, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Business Skype and social media platforms)
  • Training and experience pertinent to the Community Engagement Coordinator position and projects outlined above
  • Experience training and educating community members and volunteers
  • Able to bend/stoop, crawl/kneel, carry, reach, push/pull, walk over uneven terrain, climb ladders, and lift up to 50 lbs.
  • Experience teaching or leading groups in the outdoors, preferably youth
  • Strong interest in serving with diverse educators, community groups, and audiences.

They organize, train, and collaborate with municipal boards, neighborhood and civic associations, community members, youth groups, and schools to care for, improve access to, and support the long-term resiliency and sustainable use of community lands.  By providing training and organizing collaborative land-focused projects, they increase resources for community projects, demonstrate environmentally responsible land management, help individuals build skills, and nurture an inclusive sense of public ownership in the local landscape.

Some of these projects will involve recruiting, training, and/or managing community volunteers. Natick Community Organic Farm has proposed the following potential projects for their Community Engagement/Youth Education Coordinator:

  1. We have historically offered programming during business hours, meaning that working families are infrequent participants. We think there is great room for growth both in our infrastructure to accommodate weekend and evening programs as well as coming up with new ideas for programming. This can include but is not limited to:
    • Offer weekend farm-based programing to appeal to youth and families who cannot take part in our traditional week-day program.
    • Offer weekend or evening classes beyond our traditional programming.
    • Develop new programs and new approaches to farm-based education.
  1. Expand our farm-based field trips into classroom presentations.
    • Given the current budget limitations for schools, we’d like to experiment with offering online programming and in-class programming.
    • This could potentially expand into an online curriculum for homeschoolers or distance learners.
    • This will include thinking about place-based education and how it can be done successfully within a classroom or even online
  2.  Explore the feasibility of licensing for our preschool-aged programs and summer programs. We have run our preschool aged programs and our summer programs under the EEC occasional care exemption but this means that we are unable to accept vouchers and unable to provide full-day care for working families.
    • Our CEC/YEC would help our Public Program and Summer Program Coordinator, our to put together a feasibility study and a cost-benefit analysis for becoming licensed.

Development of these and other projects will occur during the first two months of service and consider the member’s interests and skills.
