The Green Crew youth members are designing environmental action projects to make their world a better place. Many of these projects are hosted on the gorgeous property of the Izaak Walton League MN Valley Chapter. Most of these events will be open to the general public. These service opportunities will engage the youth of all ages in water quality testing, pollinator protection, tree planting, nature trail building, fungis surveys and more!
As a member of the Green Crew’s adult advisory team, you are helping to train the next generation of environmental leaders. Feed their passion and focus their energy on meaningful projects which will make a difference.
The “Associate Advisor of Event Support” provides mentorship and support to the youth leader of the Green Crew who has been elected by their peers as the Director of Event Support. As the Director of Event Support, the trained youth leader coordinates the volunteers, food, safety, and logistics associated with service projects and events hosted by the Green Crew at the Izaak Walton League Chapter House. The Director of Event Support works as a member of the Programming and Operating Teams and has the support of the youth Vice President of each team.
As their trained advisor, you will support their goal setting, leadership development, and personal development. Inspire. Guide. Train. And be their biggest cheerleader.
An ideal Associate Advisor of Event Support would have significant experience working in event management. If you have experience working with volunteer management, that would be very valuable. If you have experience working with training and mentoring youth — that would be ideal.
