Volunteer Workshop - Saturday, February 25, 2017
Do you enjoy the outdoors? Like to work with kids? Spend time helping others learn
On Saturday, February 25, 2017, we are hosting a Volunteer Workshop at TTUJOS from 10am - 1pm.
We'll tour the campus, discuss classes offered, talk about various ways volunteers can assist instructors, and have lunch. Those that can stay a little longer will go over to the Native Garden and do some sculpting.
As a TTUJOS Volunteer, you will assist TTUJOS Instructors with educational activities
based on STEM curricula. This includes indoor and outside classrooms, field trips,
workshops, community outreach and summer camps. This can also include helping water,
clean, and maintain the Native Prairie Garden here on site where students
learn about plants, birds, wildlife, and the importance of water conservation.
It's going to be a FUN FILLED spring and summer at Texas Tech University Junction Outdoor School (TTUJOS). Join us and help make a difference to many!
